After named a UN world heritage site, France’s famous Burgundy region dropped world’s most expensive wine, priced at $15,195 (HK$117,795) per bottle. It’s about Richebourg Grand Cru which was a Cote de Nuits created by Henri Jayer, a winemaker widely considered a visionary in the business, who died in 2006 aged 84. Jayer was opposed to using chemicals in the winemaking process and believed in small-scale production, turning out only about 3,500 bottles per year.
The results are according to the Wine-Searcher website list of the 50 dearest vintages.
The website’s table of the priciest wines includes 40 Burgundies, with just five non-French wines making the cut – one Californian and four from Germany.
