A bottle of “Clos du griffier” brandy, dating from 1788, which comes from the wine cellar of Parisian restaurant Tour d’Argent, was sold for 25,000 euros at an auction.
The amount will reach the Association “Petits Princes”, which helps seriously ill children to fulfill dreams, announced Pias, who organized the auction for two days at the Salons Hoche, in Paris.
The buyer, Raphaël Zier, a French entrepreneur, said that it is a beautiful item, but he was more interested in the philanthropic purpose of the auction.
Two other similar bottles, but in worse condition were sold for 17,000 and 15,000 euros. The three bottles were auctioned at a starting price of 2,500 euros.
