26 Unique Cognacs To Be Auctioned in 7th Annual La Part des Anges Auction
Solidarity and generosity will be the watchwords for the seventh annual La Part des Anges Cognac charity auction, to be held on Thursday September 20th, 2012, at the magnificent 17th Century Château Chesnel on the banks of the Charente River, near Cognac.
Since 2005, the Part des Anges charity auction has become an important date in every Cognac lover’s calendar, not only as an opportunity to acquire exceptional and unique bottles, donated by Cognac houses, but also to share in an event that brings together all of the players in Cognac production – cellar masters, growers, distillers, coopers and glass makers.
26 Legendary Lots
The Part des Anges auction has become one of France’s biggest and most prestigious charity auctions. Over the past six years it has raised €300,000 for charity, and hopes are high that last year’s highest bid of €15,000 will be topped.
26 bottles, all chosen for their exceptional quality and rarity, will make up the sale. Many are unique and in stunning presentation carafes created especially for the auction.

2012 proceeds will benefit the Order of Malta – France
Proceeds from the Part des Anges 2012 auction will again go entirely to the Order of Malta, France. Founded some 900 years ago, the organization is involved in running hospices and humanitarian aid projects all over the world to combat poverty, disparity and sickness. The Order of Malta France includes 1,500 professionals, mainly from the world of medicine, and some 4,200 regular volunteers. For Thierry de Beaumont-Beynac, President of the Order of Malta, France, “Solidarity is an aspect of generosity that brings hope to those in suffering and hardship […] The generosity of all those who take part in La Part des Anges has enabled The Order of Malta to refurbish our Rochefort centre for the seriously handicapped, which, in turn, has vastly improved and expanded the facilities for the people we welcome there.”
