Michael Ganne, head of Wine at Christie's auction house, holds a bottle of Vin Jaune produced in 1774 during a preview in Geneva May 4, 2012. Being kept intact for eight generations by the Vercel family in a vaulted underground cellar in Arbois, the capital of Jura wines in France, this 'Burgundy-style' bottle with a long neck and rounded belly, contains 87 centilitres. A bottle from the same batch tasted by professionals in 1994 was declared as 'excellent', the golden-amber coloured nectar unveiled flavours of nuts, spices, curry, cinnamon, vanilla and dried fruits. Made to last centuries when of good quality, and nicknamed 'the wine of kings and the king of wines' this 238 years old bottle of Vin Jaune is estimated to reach 40,000 to 50,000 Swiss Francs (USD 43,800 to 54,800) when it comes to auction May 15.
