Last week we covered the story of two anonymous Canadians who paid a record $121,000 for a bottle of 1774 French Wine.
That was nothing compared with an auction later this month in Geneva. That is when the last batch of the late legendary wine maker Henri Jayer’s Burgundies, which include some of the world’s most expensive wines, are expected to rake in a record $13 million
In all, more than 1,000 bottles will be auctioned off at a gourmet restaurant in Geneva June 17th. They include 855 standard bottles and and 209 magnums, dating from the 70’s to early this century and are from the personal wine cellar of the man broadly considered the king of the Pinot Noir.
