    Vielle mis-spelled in the article should be ‘Vieille’

    Cheers!

    Meanwhile in Central Africa. Children will kill for a slice of bread.

  4. Adrian says:

    I am here to ask, can anything that you can ingest, ANYTHING, be worth anything near these kind of prices. On a smaller scale, I have compared a $300 bottle of Dom Perignon to a good Napa Valley product, (Korbel, or Chandon) $30. In NO WAY are they worth the difference in price!

  5. lal says:

    spending this much huge amount on drinks– that is the meaning of vulgar

  6. Erich Hoffman says:

    If I could afford it I would buy it

  7. Drew says:

    Ill have a VB thanks!

  8. Ferdi says:

    I have 2 bottles and I buy them only for a million each this is a rip off

  9. sylviaBerlusconi says:

    can i get a good bargain if i just take the drink and transfer them in a cheap bottle or container and they can keep the bottle
