Scheduled to take place on 16 March the consignment spans the vintages 1934 to 2010 and includes a number of large format bottles as well.

Notable highlights that have been announced so far include a Jeroboam of 1949 (£3,000 – £5,000), three bottles of the 1961 (£900 – £1,200) and an imperial of 1982 (£2,000 – £3,000).

The owner of Château Figeac, Marie-France Manoncourt, commented: “As owners of Château-Figeac, it is an honour for us to present with Christie’s this exceptional collection of very rare treasures from our cellars. It is a tribute to our family’s 125 years devoted to Figeac, as well as to my husband Thierry Manoncourt’s lifetime commitment and passion to keep achieving excellence and highlighting the nature of its unique and fabulous terroir.

“To make this auction an unforgettable event for connoisseurs, we have chosen, personally, each bottle of this exceptional selection. A variety of formats and vintages, from 1934 to 2010. These precious bottles have never left Château-Figeac before, where they have been kept in ideal conditions.”
