The Most Expensive Wines In The World
Winning the lottery is undoubtedly one of the best things that could happen to you. But what’s the point in winning if you can’t celebrate properly? In case you want to say goodbye to a good part of your newly acquired fortune by spending it on… a bottle of wine, here are our suggestions:
Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Romanee-Conti Grand Cru, Cote de Nuits, France, £8,310
Now, I am sure this wine must be exquisite. “The perfect Burgundy”, as experts call it, is made of at least 85% Pinot Noir grapes. The Archbishop of Paris once called it “velvet and satin in bottles.” I would rather call it “money and tears in bottles”. I can’t help but imagine how I gracefully wave the waiter, almost whispering: “One more bottle, please!” Judging by the wine I am ordering, you can only guess what dress I am wearing… But I digress.
Henri Jayer Cros Parantoux, Vosne-Romanee Premier Cru, France, £4,894
Another superb Burgundy, this wine is a true gem in the wine-lovers’ world and there are plenty of collectors out there who would kill for a bottle of it. The grapes for this fine wine come from a rather small vineyard at a very high altitude – perhaps that’s one of the main reasons for the exceptional qualities of this wine.
Egon Muller-Scharzhof Scharzhofberger Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese, Germany, £4,577
The notable 3rd place is taken by a German wine. It surely deserves it as its 2010 vintage was given a 100 out of 100 score by wine critics. The special grapes for this special Riesling are grown on the banks of the Moselle River in Germany’s Rheingau vineyard. Considering its high price, and especially when we are talking to merry-making products from Germany, I’d rather have a beer, thank you very much.
Domaine Leflaive Montrachet Grand Cru, Cote de Beaune, France, £3,716
As a true admirer of red wine I feel somehow hurt to see a white wine in this prestigious list of expensive wines. But this one maybe deserves its place as it is a very special wine produced in a very special way. When growing this biodynamic wine’s grapes, the wine makers take into consideration such specifics like the phases of the moon and the positions of the planets. If the planets arrange in the proper way for you to decide to spend over £3,000 on a bottle of wine, you can easily find it online (or bid on it as it is on Sotheby's Wine list as well).
Joh. Jos. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese, Germany, £3,415
That’s another German wine on the list! This sweet wine takes pride in being produced at a vineyard that has belonged to the same family since 17th century. That’s what I call a family business! Fine and delicate, this wine is among the wines that “you should try before you die” (or, at least, that’s what Google says). May I add, it better be really sweet for just the thought of its salty price leaves a bitter taste in my mouth…
Here are some other unreasonably expensive wines you can enjoy:
Domaine Leroy Musigny Grand Cru, Cote de Nuits, France, £3,379.
Domaine Georges & Christophe Roumier Musigny Grand Cru, Cote de Nuits, France, £3,202.
Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Montrachet Grand Cru, Cote de Beaune, France, £2,948
Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Ermitage Cuvee Cathelin, Rhone, France £2,403
Henri Jayer Echezeaux Grand Cru, Cote de Nuits, France £2,196
As you see, partying when you are rich may take you to unforeseen levels of pleasure. Eight out of the ten top wines come from France (no wonder), so why not head to the queen of wine countries and enjoy some Eiffel Tower time as well? It’s your money, after all (and you are crazy enough to consider paying a small fortune on wine with it). I am just suggesting…
