Wine is the drink of the gods. Its presence is important at many celebrations. But have you ever wondered what the world’s most expensive wines taste like? How much does they cost?
Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Romanee-Conti Grand Cru
Under this name lies the world’s most expensive wine. It comes from the Cote de Nuits region of France. It is produced from whole bunches of Pinot Noir grapes. The average price for a 0.75-litre bottle is $20,000. The highest price for a bottle, on the other hand, was $73,000.
What gives this price? The number of bottles – between 5,000 and 10,000 per year – and the taste. Described as a balanced, deep perfect flavour with aromas of strawberries, wild cherries, mint flowers and spices.
Domaine Leroy Musigny Grand Cru
The second most expensive wine in the world is also of French origin. The vineyard from which this wine comes prides itself on its biodynamic cultivation. Only natural energy sources and natural yeasts are used in the production of the wine. On average, you will pay $16,000 for a bottle of wine. In contrast, the highest price for a bottle of this wine reached the dizzying figure of $97,000. The wine is characterised by an extremely silky texture and red fruit aromas.
Egon Muller Scharzhofberger Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese
The third most expensive wine in the world is already a German production. The beverage comes from the Mosel region, described as the oldest wine region. The price for a bottle of the beverage is around $15,000.
Why such a price for a bottle of white wine? It is not produced regularly. It is only produced in particularly exceptional vintages and is aged for a long time. However, this gives it a rich taste of exotic fruits, spices and honey.
