Most expensive wines in the world

“Weather conditions of the vintage, winemaking techniques and the renown of the producer all go into how a wine is priced. Some bottles, however, have a je ne sais quoi, a rare magic that makes them irresistible to wine lovers and can send their value to astronomical prices.”

– Andrea Marino, Cult Wines Senior Fine Wine Buyer

Does being ‘the most expensive’ make a good investment wine?

Highly priced and highly sought after, these are the wines most coveted by collectors and connoisseurs around the world. The reds, whites, Champagnes, and dessert wines that top the lists of most expensive wines represent the acmes of oenology, the truest expressions of terroir and masteries of craft that have built the reputations of iconic producers and their famed vineyards for centuries.

“We were delighted to see world records broken in several categories, including the highest price ever paid for a case of wine in a Christie’s online wine sale in the Americas as six magnums of Château Mouton Rothschild 1953 made an astonishing $87,500, a new world record price for this rare collectible. The sale achieved 161% of its low estimate and we continue to see global demand for fine and rare wine far outstrip overall supply – this market shows no signs of cooling.”
