A single lot of four bottles of Chateau Mouton-Rothschild from the 1800s holds the highest estimate in Christie's June 28 auction of fine wine in Paris.
The lot includes one bottle each of the 1865, 1875, 1889 and 1890 vintages from the illustrious Bordeaux estate.
Valued at $53,070-79,604, all bottles have new capsules and new labels, as well as a certificate from the chateau.
A 12 bottle lot of the equally sought after 1982 vintage from Chateau Petrus will follow, with an estimate price of $46,436-72,971.
The market for Bordeaux looks to be finding its feet again after a poor performance in 2012, with the Liv-ex Bordeaux 500 reporting a 4.7% increase for the year to March.
