The event - which will take place in New Bond Street London - features 577 different types of rare wine from across the globe.

Among the top items in the auctions are nine bottles of Petrus 1982, Pomerol. Although their labels are slightly worn, this French wine is celebrated as one of the best of its kind. Laced with notes of dark ruby garnet, intense tobacco, cedar, berry and blackberry. The coveted bottles are expected to sell at a grand total of between $32,607–45,650.

Likewise, three rare bottles of Petrus 1961, Pomerol are up for grabs at the auction, with experts estimating a winning bid of between $19,564–26,086 - around the same price as a luxury Mazda MX-5 Miata sports-car.

Sourced from the Cros Parantoux region of Vosne-Romanee in eastern France, three bottles of 1993 Henri Jayer Cros Parantoux have also made their way to the London-based auction. Although bin-soiled and with soiled labels, the bottles (alongside a 1.5L magnum bottle) are expected to sell at around $6,521–7,826 at the event.

Henri Jayer is renowned as one of the innovative minds in the world of Burgundian winemaking. Known for the quality of his Pinot Noir, the last bottles from his personal collection sold for a staggering £35 million last year in Geneva. These coveted wine bottles are a stellar addition to any wine enthusiast’s collection.
