Armand Rousseau, Chambertin Clos de Beze 1985, 12 bottles per lot

There is a quaint folklore behind this wine that always reminds of the monastic heritage of Burgundy. In the year 630AD Algamaire, the Duke of Southern Burgundy gifted lands to the Abbey of Bèze for agricultural use. The monks, being fond of a glass of crimson hued wine after Vespers, decided to continue the Roman practice of plantings vines and so they sectioned off a field and named it the Clos de Bèze. 

Shipwreck Wine, 2 bottles per lot
Two extraordinary 17th-century bottles, the oldest that has ever been brought to market at Christie's. In 2010 a wreck site was uncovered during a survey mission of the ocean floor off the coast of Germany. At a depth of 40 metres, divers discovered a decayed wreck and buried, deep in the mud in old rattan basket was found to be 14 ancient bottles. The shape of the bottles and a thorough investigation of the wine and cork indicated that the wine was bottled between 1670 - 1690.
