Richebourg Features With Cheval Blanc at Trotter’s Sale

Christie’s International Plc holds a wine auction in New York this week featuring historic vintages from the cellar of Chicago restaurant Charlie Trotter’s, while Sotheby’s (BID) hosts a London sale and Zachys is in Hong Kong.

Top wines listed from Charlie Trotter’s, which closed at the start of September after a 25-year run, include four bottles of Richebourg 1986 Henri Jayer Burgundy with an estimate of as much as $24,000 and five bottles of Chateau Cheval Blanc 1945 Bordeaux for up to $12,000, according to the Christie’s catalog.

Christie’s is also selling wine in Geneva and for the Hospices de Beaune in Burgundy, while New York will be the venue for auctions by Sotheby’s and Acker Merrall & Condit.
