$60,000 Krug 1996 champagne set to sparkle at Acker Auctions

Acker Auctions' sale on April 21 has more than just fine wines to excite investors

Spring is here which must mean it's time for a touch of champers, and Acker Auctions' wine sale in New York on April 21 provides plenty of bottles to tempt connoisseurs.

For investors looking to gain a head start on the competition, what Acker calls "a true future legend in champagne" will feature at the sale. A 60-magnum lot of highly acclaimed, Krug 1996 will go to one lucky bidder.

The lot is estimated to sell for between $45,000 and $60,000 and is worth considering for those looking to balance their alternative investment portfolio with something that really gets up your nose.

Other lots of note include a number of Dom Perignon 1959s as well as a fine selection of large format Roederers.

 Champagne can make for a tasty alternative investment

There are also magnums of 1964 Cristal, 1949 Pommery and 1959 Krug Private Cuvee among many others.

The evening sale of course also features a fine array of vintage wines. Watch this space for more details.
