Wine to Be Auctioned From Charlie Trotter's Has Gone Missing

Uh oh, nearly 60 cases of the talked-about wine have gone missing en route to Christie's

There's been a snafu in the upcoming Charlie Trotter's wine auction at Christie's: about 60 cases of the wine have gone missing. 

Eater Chicago first reported on the stolen wine, which included "some pristine older Bordeauxs, some red Burgundies." While Trotter told Eater that they weren't all the greatest wines around, about 10 percent of the missing wine was "the highest-end level." However, no one is sure just how much the reported missing wines are worth. 

Still, there's another 2,500 bottles up for grabs at the upcoming auction, Crain's Chicago reports. The auction, starting Nov. 16, is expected to raise $1 million in sales.
