On Dec. 1, Sotheby’s New York will hold a delicious-sounding auction, “Finest and Rarest Wine Featuring Treasures Direct from the House of Krug.” This particular selection of champagne has, according to a press release, “never previously left Krug’s cellars in Reims.” It is the largest auction coming direct from Krug since its founding in 1843.

There are many rare offerings, including vintages from 1961, 1979 and 1982, and the sale is estimated to earn a total of $350,000 to $500,000.
