Asia's thirst for fine wine seems to have few limits.
A case of 1978 Romanée-Conti Grand Cru sold for $476,280 on Saturday, setting a record for Romanée-Conti and making it one of the most expensive cases ever sold at auction. That works out to about $39,700 per bottle or about $4,900 per glass.
Christie's said the buyer was from Asia. The sale price was more than three-times the high estimate for the case.
