La Tour d’Argent’s Big Wine Auction

Paris’s Michelin-starred restaurant, the Tour d’argent, is to sell 18,000 bottles of wine and spirits in an auction which is expected to raise about a million euros.

The d’Argent restaurant, which dates back to 1582, is cleaning out its 450,000-bottle wine cellar, considered one of the best in the world.

The restaurant is also selling some very old spirits, like three bottles of a Clos du Griffier Cognac from 1788, the year before the French Revolution.

The bottles are valued between about 100 euros to several thousand per bottle.

The auction, organised by the Piasa auction house, will be held in Paris on 7-8 December.
