The 12 wines from The Drops of God

The 13th wine or The Drops of God wine was, in fact, not revealed in the Manga – the series finished by stating that every person has his own Drops of God bottle, as every person’s taste is different.

However, in the Japanese TV adaptation of the series, the 13th wine was Chateau Le Puy 2003, which was widely criticised.

And, as reported by db at the time, the winemaker at the Right Bank property in the Côte de Francs, Jean-Pierre Amoreau, actually withdrew the wine from circulation in Japan.

He explained to a French radio station that he wanted to “avoid speculation because we wanted this wine, which had been chosen as a mythical wine, to remain within reach of everyone.”

Average price (according to Wine Searcher, without tax): NA, but the average price across the vintages available is £35 – making it the cheapest wine in the series.
