Chateau Latour 1982 proves a steady investment at Bonhams

The legendary Château Latour 1982 - considered by many to be the Médoc region's finest-ever wine - emerged as the star lot at Bonhams' Fine and Rare Wines sale in London.

Two lots, comprising a dozen bottles of the "third" Latour - titled simply Pauillac, after the region in which it is produced -  each led the way realising £13,800 ($20,956) and £12,650 ($19,210), respectively.

Among the half-a-dozen bottles lots, six bottles of Pauillac 1982 sold for £6,670 ($10,129), as market values for the 1982 remain consistent according to analysis by Vinfolio.

Today, Château Latour 1982 remains one of the world's utmost finest wines, and was awarded 100/100 in the eminent critic Robert Parker's scale.

What's more, there is plenty more development potential to come in the 1982 as bottles continue to mature, making it a great investment for the lucky buyer at Christie's.

Elsewhere in the sale, a dozen Château Margaux 1982 bottles brought £6,900 ($10,498), again in keeping with the vintage's 2010 market value.

Bonhams' sale was held on July 1.
