This coming Spring, Sotheby’s Wine is offering 75 limited-edition Versailles celebration cases featuring five Château Mouton Rothschild vintages in an unprecedented partnership between Château Mouton Rothschild and the Palace of Versailles. The cases will be offered across a trio of international auctions at Sotheby’s throughout the spring 2019. The first 25 cases will be featured in Hong Kong on 1 April, followed by London on 17 April and concluding in New York on 4 May. The proceeds from the sale of these beautifully crafted collectors’ cases will be donated in full to help fund restoration projects at the Palace of Versailles.
