The top 10 most expensive wines4th September, 2013 by Andy Young
From Pinot Noir, to Chardonnay and Riesling, here are the world’s top 10 most expensive wines.
Compiled by popular wine search engine WineSearcher.com, the list is made up of the average tax-free price for 75cl bottles. No distinction is made between vintages and wine auctions have not been taken into account. WineSearcher has also taken out of the average price sales that were deemed to be too high or too low.
What is notable from this list is just how strong Burgundy wines are, accounting for eight out of the top 10. Indeed that trend continues for WineSearcher’s top 50 most expensive wines, with 37 coming from Burgundy, including six from the Côte de Beaune and 31 from the Côte de Nuits.
There is a more even split between red and white wine in this top 10, with red just edging it by six to four.
