Fun activity tip: Elysée auctioning 10% of its cellar

As a number of people look for out-of-beaten-path activities, here is a fun tip. A month from now, the French presidency will sell 1200 of its wines at the Drouot auction house (that's 10% of the entire cellar), at all kind of price points.

Details in French at www.drouot.com/…

And an article (in English) to get an idea of what to expect at a Drouot auction: bonjourparis.com/story/…

Desperate times call for desperate measures! Or a "case" of too little and too late.....

Follow-up: since Brussels asked for more budgetary efforts, the PM's office is about to also sell a number of bottles (1400) this Friday, again at Drouot: drouot.fr/default.html…
