The sale will take place on 15 May and the combined collections are expected to make over US$3 million.

The “Treasures” sale encompasses 250 lots from the cellar of a “distinguished” Swiss collector.

“Part I” was sold in 2011 in Hong Kong.

Highlights include 25 double magnums of Château Latour 1982 ($5,800-$8,000 apiece), double magnums of ’82 Margaux ($2,400-$3,200), 96 magnums of ’82 Mouton Rothschild ($10-$15,000 per six) and imperials of 1961 Lafite ($9,000-$13,000 each).

The auction also features a stellar line-up of Spain’s leading fine wine label, Vega Sicilia – including the “legendary” 1938 ($1,000-$2,000 a bottle).

Christie’s described it as, “one of the most comprehensive collections of pre-war Unico ever to come to the auction block.”

Highlights include Unico 1921 ($12,000-$18,000 per six), 45 bottles of Unico, including white, spanning 1920 – 1990 ($26,500-$35,000) and eight magnums of Unico from 1960-1985 ($6,500-$9,000).
