|Cut of wagyu beef by Yves-Marie Le Bourdonnec|
The prime cut of wagyu beef selected by Paris-based butcher and “the Meat Magician of Asnières” Yves-Marie Le Bourdonnec of Le Couteau d'Argent also beat expectations. Estimated at €160-200, the cut sold for €383.
|Cheeses by Luigi Guffanti|
Italian cheese specialist Luigi Guffanti's legendary Parmigiano Reggiano, produced in an abandoned silver mine in Valganna, north Italy, and matured for 48 months before sale, beat its esimate of €120-150 for 4kg comfortably. The three lots sold for €383-434 each.
Robert Duperier's fresh foie gras, sold in 600g lots, also proved tantalising - selling for €204 based on an estimate of €50-70; and Laurence Cailler's pick of vanilla went for €140-179 after estimates of €70-100. Read the full results here.
