From the Huffington Post, Bernie Madoff’s wine collection is being auctioned off! Thank goodness because these bottles will turn into raisins or god knows what if left for 150 years! Now, how do I get my hands on a bottle?
His collection includes:
- a case of 1996 Chateau Mouton-Rothschild ($3,200-$3,800)
- six bottle of 1990 Chateau Beychevelle ($350-$480)
- one bottle of 1964 Chateau Cheval Blanc ($500-$750)
- six bottles of 1997 Antinori Tignanello ($850-$1,200)
Certain bottles wouldn’t typically “pass muster” for a Morell auction, but they are included for their relevancy as conversation pieces rather than for their quality of wine. The proceeds from the sale, made possible by the U.S. Marshals Office, will go to Madoff’s victims as part of a “general recovery effort” according to the Morell website.
