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 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.
