Krug, Mouton and Latour – as well as a day in the kitchen with Café Anglais chef Rowley Leigh – are up for grabs at a charity auction in November.

Magnums of Krug 1996, Jeroboams of Beaucastel, cases of Mouton Rothschild 2000 and Guigal’s 2001 La Turque, and a vertical tasting case of Chateau Latour come under the hammer on 13 November at Christie’s in London.

Private collectors, wine merchants and restaurateurs including Farr Vintners, Rowley Leigh of Kensington Place and M&S chairman Sir Stuart Rose are supporting the charity auction in aid of the Bahia Street Trust and the Cardinal Hume Centre.

The vertical tasting case of Latour comes complete with twelve vintages from 1982 to 2000.

Also on offer is the chance to spend the day in the kitchen of Le Café Anglais with its chef-patron Rowley Leigh, followed by a Champagne dinner in the evening.

All lots are being auctioned by Christie’s, which has waived the commission for this section of the sale.

The Bahia Street Trust and the Cardinal Hume Centre are charities which help the socially excluded.
