The world’s most expensive bottle of red wine, priced at $195,000 a bottle, has gone on sale in Dubai airport, with only three of the limited edition bottles made available for purchase.
The 12 litre bottles were produced by the 400-year-old Château Margaux vineyard in the Bordeaux region of France and have gone on display at the Le Clos wine store in Dubai International Airport.
The Château Margaux vineyard is renowned as one of the world’s greatest vineyards and the 2009 vintage is considered to be one of the best ever produced by the estate.
Only six Balthazars, which are 12 litre bottles, have been produced, and three have been offered for sale in the Dubai outlet, which is located in the A380 concourse.
"To mark this fantastic vintage, we are delighted to create a unique opportunity by partnering with Le Clos to offer three Balthazars to the world’s most discerning wine buyers. Château Margaux’s history stretches back over 400 years, during which the estate has produced some of the world’s best wines time and again. The Château Margaux 2009 vintage is one of the ﬁnest we have ever produced, hence why we chose to bottle it in this magniﬁcent format,” Paul Pontellier, chief winemaker and managing director of Château Margaux said in a statement issued by Le Clos.
Priced at $195,000, the bottles are reported to be the most expensive ever sold, while the price tag also includes a first class ticket to France to visit the Château Margaux estate.
