Wine enthusiasts who love champagne might enjoy the possibility that Champagne Paul Launois is offering. The champagne house has set aside ten barrels of Chardonnay, that they will auction off on June 14th, 2019. The minimum price for each barrel is 23,400 Euros (about $26,142) for the 216 bottles of champagne that will come from the barrel. That would put the minimum price for each bottle of champagne at least at $121.

Those purchasing a barrel will have the opportunity to work with the champagne house to determine aging and dosage. Aging can take place between three and ten years. The dosage will be determined by the barrel owner’s preferences. 

Although the auction is out of the reach for most wine enthusiasts, collectors, industry professionals and restaurants may have an interest. The Chardonnay grapes chosen for the ten barrels are from vineyards in the Le Mesnil-sur-Oger area of Champagne. The grapes were hand-selected by Sarah and Julien Launois (pictured), owners of Champagne Paul Launois. Champagne specialist Philippe Jamesse developed tasting notes for the barreled Chardonnay.

The auction will take place at 6:00 pm onsite in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, France as well as online and by phone. Visit the Champagne Paul Launois website for information.
