Rare Wines to be Auctioned in Geneva

Heads up, oenophiles! Christie’s will be auctioning a collection of fine wines in Geneva on May 15 at the Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues.

The most valuable bottle is an extremely rare 1774 ‘Vin Jaune,’ coming directly from Arbois, in the Jura region, which is estimated at $55,000.

Highlights also include a batch of Mouton-Rothschild from 1945, a twelve-bottle lot of La Tâche 1959 and a collection comprised of 338 bottles and 43 Magnums of vintage Château Latour wines. This collection includes almost every vintage from the 20th century. (Think a Magnum from 1905, 2 bottles of 1918 harvested just before the World War armistice, and 1 bottle per exceptional year: 1920, 1928, 1929 1959, and 1961.)

The Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues is located at Quai des Bergues 33 in Geneva. Visit www.christies.com for more information.
