TOP 10 MOST EXPENSIVE WINES IN THE WORLD

Widespread throughout the world, wine-growing takes place in wine regions. France is the largest consumer of expensive wines. The United States is also rich in wine regions. Wine growing is taking place in more and more countries, even the Netherlands has vineyards in Gelderland and Limburg. But not all wine is right. Wine you have in many types and colors. The quality of wine is also very different. Criteria for the classification of wine include the grape variety used, the designation of origin and the alcohol content.But a higher quality standard does not mean by definition that the wine is also better in terms of taste experience. The better the taste of a wine, the more expensive the wine. The taste puppets of the true wine connoisseurs are characterized by this. Also, the wine is long lasting. So expensive wine is usually old wine. As a result, there are often only a few bottles in circulation. In addition to taste and shelf life, reputation also plays a part in determining the price of wine: what has a bottle already been happening and whose wine has been? This is the top 10 list of the world’s most expensive wines.

10. Royal DeMaria ($ 30,000)

1775 Massandra - TOP 10 MOST EXPENSIVE WINES IN THE WORLD

The Crimea region, which is located in Russia and Ukraine, has been known as a wine producing region for centuries. What makes the Massandra so valuable? This probably is due to the fact that the wine was bottled in a bottle harvested in 1775. The wine has been around 230 years old. If you would buy it somewhere, you could drink of 250 years old wine in a few years. The question is whether the wine still tastes good. The 1775 Massandra is more a popular wineamong collectors than a good drinking wine.

8. 1945 Château Mouton-Rothschild ($ 47,000)

7. 1787 Château d’Yquem ($ 100,000)

1787 - TOP 10 MOST EXPENSIVE WINES IN THE WORLD

In the world of luxury wines, red is often more appreciated than white. The only difference in production is the color of the grapes: red wine is made from blue grapes and white wine of green grapes. White wine tastes better in combination with sea food and lighter meals, but still remains the second choice for red wine. Nevertheless, this white wine is on number 7 of this list. The French Château d’Yquem, from the year 1787, was sold for more than $ 100,000. The bottle of wine was handed over personally by a representative. This person flew specially across the ocean. What a good service.

Roman%C3%A9e Conti 1945 - TOP 10 MOST EXPENSIVE WINES IN THE WORLD

The year 1945 is seen as a good year for the expensive wines. This is probably due to the fact that in this year the Second World War ended, a year for new opportunities. This Romanée Conti was made in a wine region in Romania. There are only 600 bottles of this type of wine. This makes the Romanée Conti 1945 a very rare wine type. The most expensive bottle of wine was sold to an American collector for $ 123,900 at Christie’s fine wine auction.

1787 Ch%C3%A2teau Lafit - TOP 10 MOST EXPENSIVE WINES IN THE WORLD

This 1787 Château Lafite is more than an extremely rare and high quality wine. The wine was part of the personal collection of famous Thomas Jefferson. It even carries its initials. The wine is no longer drinkable, as the taste is affected by the old age and the rudimentary bottling. But as a collecting item, the bottle is still very popular. This is evidenced by the fact that the bottle was purchased in the year 1985 for $ 160,000 by Malcolm Forbes. Today, this $ 160,000 is worth at least $ 315,000.

2. 1907 Heidsieck ($ 275,000)

1907 Heidsieck - TOP 10 MOST EXPENSIVE WINES IN THE WORLD

This 1907 Heidsieck wine is extremely expensive but for a good reason. The wine party was ordered in the early 20th century by the Russian imperial family, including the last tsar Nicholas II of Russia. The wine was transported by ship, but was searching after the ship sank. The bottle was found much later, in 1997, in the ship’s wreckage. Each bottle of wine from the party was sold for $ 275,000. That’s an extremely high price for a wine that was not known if it was still drinkable. Meanwhile, only a small group of people or wine, who has lived on the seabed for almost a century, is affected to its taste.

1. 1947 Château Cheval Blanc ($ 304,375)

1947 Ch%C3%A2teau Cheval Blanc 768x1024 - TOP 10 MOST EXPENSIVE WINES IN THE WORLD

In the wine world, reputation plays an almost equal role as shelf life. The 1947 Château Cheval Blanc is a wine with a huge reputation. According to many, it is one of the best Bordeaux wines ever. The most expensive bottle was sold to an anonymous buyer for $ 304,375 at the Christie’s wine auction in Geneva. If the bottle is stored under normal conditions, the bottle is still for 50 years. That’s ideal, as you probably only open the world’s most expensive wine on a very special memorable occasion.
