Wine Auction of Rare Bottles to Raise Money for Cancer Research

Leading luxury publication Departures is tapping into their network of affluent readers in hopes of generating additional bids for Mounir Saouma of Lucien Le Moine’s wine auction to raise major money for cancer research at Institut Curie. Founded in 1920, Marie Curie’s institute will be celebrating 100 years of research and education in 2020. The detailed story outlines the full list of wines in the lot from the world’s most collectible producers, along with a one-of-a-kind experience at Lucien Le Moine in Burgundy with Saouma.  The writer adds that “The bidding is currently at $90,250––if Mounir Saouma of Lucien Le Moine and the Institut Curie are not satisfied with the bids, they will consider auctioning off each element of the lot separately in an effort to raise more funds. Remember: All of the money raised will be going toward cancer research, treatment, and education.”
