Just a quick post on a Friday afternoon, and a suggestion to check your favorite travel sites for cheap tickets to Paris. Because this weekend, Decanter.com is reporting, "The Crédit Municipal de Paris – the city of Paris's treasury – is hosting its second annual wine auction, on 16 November, at its offices in the Marais."
"Next week's sale," the article continues, "features 400 lots of fine wine and spirits. Highlights include single bottles of Salon le Mesnil (from 1959 to 1964, and estimated at €2,000-3,500); Domaine de la Romanee Conti Romanee Conti (from the 1970s, 80s and 90s and ranging from €1,500-2,800); and Gaja's 1997 Sori San Lorenzo and Costa Russi."
In other words, this is the perfect time for a long weekend in the City of Lights...and potentially great deals on some spectacular wine.
