Cognac auctions for charity

By Amber Rolt on 20/08/14 10:20 AM

Cognac’s annual ‘La Part Des Anges’, which is a charity auction, will feature rare bottles for bidders for the first time this year.

The charity event is organised by Bureaw Interprofessional Du Cognac and this year it will take place at the 11th century Bassac Abbey, with all profits from the event going to the Children in Crisis charity.

Apparently in this year’s auction is a bottle of Hine Grande Champagne Cognac 1964 in a presentation box designed by Parisian jeweler Arthus-Bertrand, which carries an estimate of €5,000.

The highest estimate is held by “Coupe No1”, an hors d’age Cognac offered by Hennessy, which represents a blend of the house’s top expressions, including Richard Hennessy. The Cognac is presented in a one litre Baccarat crystal carafe with a bespoke Guerlain seal and carries an estimate of €20,000.

This year 25 lots in total have been put forward, and the prestigious donations to a good cause will make this a very special evening.
