The last batch of late legendary winemaker Henri Jayer's Burgundies – which include some of the world's most expensive wines – will go on auction in Geneva next month and could rake in up to $13 million.The 855 standard bottles and 209 magnums, dating from between 1970 and 2001, are from the personal wine cellar of the man broadly considered the king of the Pinot Noir. Frenchman Henri Jayer, who died in 2006 at the age of 84, established a name for himself in the 1970s, when specialized wine reviews ranked his wines among the best in the world.It is this quality that has made Jayer's wines some of the most sought after in the wine world – and brought them their sometimes astronomical price tags.
