Singer Chris DeBurgh Selling His Wine Collection
Singer Chris DeBurgh, most famous for his song "Lady in Red," is also a wine collector who is ready to sell off some of his best vintages. He recently sat down with Decanter to confess that the reason he is gong to sell is not because he needs the cash but because he can't bear to drink some of the most expensive bottles. He has been collecting for years and has picked up many prized bottles including a case of Lafite 1945 and Latour 61, Mouton 82, Cheval Blanc 78, Margaux and La Mission Haut Brion 61. He also has a complete collection of Mouton vintages from 1945 that he updates with the latest vintage each year. The singer says that he will use the proceeds from the sale to add more wine to his collection, hopefully ones he can pop the cork on without as much angst. Chris de Burgh's latest album Moonfleet & Other Stories is being released next week.
