In this photo dated Tuesday May 28, 2013, an unidentified auction goer displays a bottle of 1966 Chateau d'Yquem premier cru Sauternes put on auction by the French presidential Palace during an auction preview in Issy les Moulineaux, south of Paris, France. French President Francois Hollande’s palace has decided to dive into its wine cellar and sell some of its treasures, to raise money and replenish its collection with more modest vintages. About 1,200 bottles, a tenth of the Elysee’s wine collection, are to be sold at Drouot auction house in Paris on Thursday and Friday. Organizers say that prices may reach up to 2,200-2,500 euros for a 1990 Petrus down to 15 euros for a more modest wine. (AP Photo/Jacques Brinon) less
