Text size Aa Aa

One bottle alone, a Petrus 1990, fetched a cool 7,625 euros at auction in Paris: three times the expected price.

The French presidency was selling off part of the its wine collection. Twelve hundred bottles went for a total of 718,800 euros (including fees).

The profits will help the state’s budget as the Elysee seeks to replenish its stock with “more modest” wines.
