A rare collection of 18th-century first growth Bordeaux and top Burgundy from the renowned cellar of the famous Hostellerie Coq Hardy, near Paris, has been sold by London-based Antique Wine Company.

Within 48 hours of the collection being placed on the market it was snatched up by a collector from Switzerland for the price of 266,600.

Stephen Williams, managing director of The Antique Wine Company, commented: The present state of the fine wine market is seriously buoyant, the most heated I have seen it for many years.'

The wines include eight bottles and two magnums of 18th(1789 and 1791) and 19th century Chteau Lafite Rothschild and a jeroboam of 1900 Chteau Latour.
