Michel Chasseuil is a retired French engineer. A long time ago he caught the wine virus, long before it become trendy with wine tastings and long before the nouveaux riches started collecting wines. Today he has a collection of 20,000 bottles dating back to the 18th century. Perhaps the world’s greatest wine collection: all DRC RC back to 1905, Petrus back to 1924, Yquem 1811, a champagne produced for Napoleon… He no longer has the intention to drink all the wines. Instead he wants to create a museum dedicated to wine, in Saint Emilion in Bordeaux. But he does not currently have the funding to do so. Perhaps a kind-hearted reader can help? It would indeed be interesting to visit if it becomes a reality. Read more on TimesOnline.
