World’s most expensive bottle of red wine, a 12-litre Chateau Margaux, goes on sale for ￡122,000
The world's most expensive red wine has been put on display at an upmarket vino vendor in Dubai.The limited edition 12-litre bottle of Chateau Margaux 2009 comes with an eye-watering ￡122,380 price tag. A mere six Balthazars, meaning 12-litre bottle, of the exclusive tipple have been produced, with only three of those set to go on sale.
The wine is produced at the Chateau Margaux vineyard in the Midoc region of France, just north of Bordeaux. 'Chateau Margaux's history stretches back over 400 years, during which the estate has produced some of the world's best wines time and again,' Paul Pontallier, chief winemaker and managing director of the estate, said.
'The Chateau Margaux 2009 vintage is one of the finest we have ever produced, hence why we chose to bottle it in this magnificent format.'
The wine is currently on show at wine merchant Le Clos' flagship store at Dubai International Airport.
The Balthazars are housed in an ornate oak case, while the bottle itself has been beautifully engraved with gold by master craftsmen. Although the wine will put a serious dent in any oenophile's pocket, buyers get a number of other perks for their money.They will be flown first class to France to visit the Chateau Margaux estate, where they will enjoy a private tour of its cellars and vineyard, before sitting down to dinner with the chief winemaker.
