The most expensive bottle of white wine ever sold
In July 2011, private wine collector and sommelier Christian Vanneque paid $115,000 for a bottle of 1811 Château d’Yquem, making it the most expensive bottle of white wine ever sold. He purchased the precious bottle from the Antique Wine Company. The 200-year-old bottle is widely considered to be one of the best Bordeaux wines and one of the best vintages in the world. The wine earned 100 points from Robert Parker—the highest ranking possible—and another 100 points by the Wine Spectator's Per-Henrik Mason in 1999. The rare bottle is securely and proudly displayed at Vanneque's restaurant in Bali, SIP Wine Bar. Vanneque said that he plans to drink the wine in 2017.
