I saw this lot and looked over pretty well myself.  I could not entertain going for it due to the lot size, knowing it was going to be expensive as a group.  However, I was also not overly impressed with it as a group.  My impression was there were a number of good bottles, but the group as a whole had far too many of bottles that were not of any significant quality and were mediocre at best.  Given the price realized each bottle on the average was $475 US, and as whole this lot sold for about twice of what I would have expected.   Personally, I felt this was an interesting ploy by the auction house to boost the a realized price on mediocre bottles by having a number of quality bottles intermixed to seed the lot.
