Based on a survey encompassing more than 7 million wines, a rare wine from Burgundy vineyards has been crowned the world’s most expensive one. The 1985 Richebourg Grand Cru is not the most famous wine, but, according to the British website Wine Searcher, it is the most expensive, at the price of $15,000 per bottle. Experts probably expected the Romanee-Conti, Burgundy’s most famous fine wine, to win on this survey, but the wine from the Cotes de Nuit range ultimately made its way to the top. This wine as created by Henri Jayer, a man who was considered a visionary in the business, who died in 2006 at the age of 84.
WineSearcher, which was created in 1999, released its annual list of the 50 most expensive wines in the world. This survey was based on prices collected from nearly 55,000 wine merchants.
The first place is a surprise, but the second and the third are not. The Romanee-Conti took second place and the wine that took the third place, which’s price per a bottle is $8,832, is Vosne-Romanee Premier Cru, created by the same man who cerated the winning wine.
