Attending the 2017 connoisseurship summit was amazing. I got to learn a lot about wines. There are many exciting topics in the event. These include the benefits of drinking wine. How wines are made. How long it takes to store it, and so on. But the thing that entirely caught my attention is the presentation of the most expensive wines in the world. Knowing that highly-estimated prices for a bottle of drink exist, it is just shocking.
The first and the most expensive wine in the world is the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Grand Cru. It tops the list because of the three Pinot Noir grapevines it needs only to make a single bottle. Can you imagine that? The average price of a bottle is $19,702 to $28,112. But in limited editions, its price can go up to $551,314 per bottle.
Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Montrachet Grand Cru is also very promising. The wine is known for its young and fruity quality. It also incorporates delicacy and elegance at the same time. Coming from the same family of DRC, Montrachet Grand Cru is arguably prestigious enough. The average price of its bottle is $7,924. It seems an adequate amount of money to spend on it. However, since few of its kind are being made each year, its price can go up to $108,000.
Another on the list is Egon Muller Scharzhofberger Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese. It is considered to be the greatest gift of Germany to the wine industry. It comes from the prestigious first winemaking families so that even adds to its value. The average price per bottle is $13,220, and the maximum price can reach $33,883.
Also, one of the premium choices of many wealthy elites is Screaming Eagle Sauvignon Blanc. It is highly in demand for most collectors because of its limited production. Its average price per bottle starts at $5,983 and can go up to a maximum of $9,058.
