David Elswood, Christie's head of wine, commented prior to the sale: "This collection includes a roll call of impressive wines, including one of the most comprehensive groups of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti that we have ever offered at auction.

"It is remarkable to see that Sir Alex's talent of picking quality players for the pitch also extends to picking sensational wines for the cellar."
