Straight from the Cellar
Wine aficionados will have an opportunity to acquire rare vintages and first growths from the cellar of the famed Mirabelle restaurant in London at Bonhams auction on April 30. The auction house will offer more than 300 lots of wine from the now-closed Michelin-starred restaurant, including notable vintage champagnes such as Dom Pérignon Oenothéque and the Krug Collection, as well as eight vintage first growths from Latour 1916, and Clos des Papes (shown). In its heyday, Mirabelle was frequented by such clientele as Winston Churchill, Orson Welles, Vivien Leigh, and Laurence Olivier, along with a constant flow of European royalty. The Mirabelle cellar’s contents, worth more than $200,000, will be offered on April 30 at Bonhams London headquarters. (087.002.736.22, www.bonhams.com).
