A Geneva auction house raked in more than $4 million Sunday for a collection of "grand crus" from Burgundy's renowned Domaine de la Romanee-Conti wine estate.The 1,407 bottles that went under the hammer beat expectations and sold for a total of 4.2 million Swiss francs ($4.3 million), with a single 3-liter jeroboam of 1999 Romanee-Conti snatched up for 60,000 Swiss francs by an anonymous buyer.In addition to the jeroboam of 1999 Romanee-Conti, the top lots included 12 bottles of an 1988 Romanee-Conti bought for 144,000 Swiss francs.Only 200 bottles are expected to be made there this year, and over 100,000 people are on a waiting list to acquire a single bottle, Ganne said.
