June 12 (Bloomberg) -- Wine from Bordeaux first-growth producers Chateau Latour and Chateau Lafite Rothschild and Burgundies from the 1990s including Romanee St. Vivant are set to lead a sale held by U.S.-based Heritage Auctions this week.

A case of Lafite 1982 carries a top estimate of $35,000 while a six-magnum lot of Latour 2009 is estimated to fetch $12,000 to $15,000, according to Heritage’s website. A case of Romanee St. Vivant 1995 from the Vosne-Romanee district of Cote de Nuits carries an upper estimate of $9,500.

The auction includes a range of Bordeaux from the 2009 and 2010 vintages and comes as collectors are seeking rare Medocs and older vintages from regions such as Burgundy and California following a muted sales campaign for Bordeaux 2013 wines released in April. The Liv-ex 50 Index of top Bordeaux has fallen for nine straight months.

“Provenance is story with this auction, from the blue-chip to the drinkers” Frank Martell, director of fine & rare wines at Heritage, said in an e-mailed statement previewing the sale.

The auction also includes a case of Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2000 with an estimate of as much as $15,000 and a case each of Chateau Lafite Rothschild’s 2009 and 2010 vintages, both estimated at as much as $13,000, according to Heritage.

A single bottle of Romanee-Conti 1978 Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Burgundy carries an estimate of $10,000 to $13,000 while an 11-bottle assortment of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti 1990 is priced to fetch as much as $35,000.

The sale, which may raise more than $2.1 million, will be held in Beverly Hills, California on June 13 and June 14.
