From 2014 until 2016, Mr De-Meyer, using the alias "Mark Miller", sold...

Nicholas De Meyer was arrested in Los Angeles on Tuesday night (16 January) and named in an indictment read out in a Manhattan court the following day.

Among the thefts, the government said, were bottles from the French estate Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, considered among the "best, most expensive and rarest wines in the world". The four bedroom unit with a Central Park view and a 1,000-bottle wine storage area sold in November 2016 for $21.5 million.

The indictment does not name Mr. Solomon, but a Goldman Sachs spokesman confirmed he was the victim.

The document added one of the 40-year-old's duties was to receive shipments of wine at his boss's apartment in Manhattan and then transport them to a property in East Hampton, approximately 100 miles east of New York City.

On Tuesday, he was taken into custody in Los Angeles and a federal court has ordered he be transported to NY to face charges. De-Meyer is represented by a public defender, whose office didn't immediately respond to a call seeking comment.

"Wine list prices are insane right now", Mr. Solomon told Bloomberg Pursuits.

The wines De-Meyer is accused of stealing and selling include bottles of DRC, a top Burgundy. De-Meyer left the country, delaying the investigation, the person said. Standard 750-milliliter bottles at that price - nearly US$20,000 apiece - would sit near the very top of the wine-auction stratosphere. Harvey Schwartz, Goldman's other co-president, received US$20 million in compensation in fiscal 2016 when he served as chief financial officer.

It sounds like a good gig: working as the personal assistant for-and managing the stunning wine collection of-the No. 2 man at Goldman Sachs.
