Christie’s has recently sold the most expensive 750 ml bottle of red burgundy. The sale took place in Geneva on May 17 and the special lot was a 1945 bottle of Romanée-Conti Wine. Only 600 such bottles were produced in that year and the Burgundy inside them boasted a unique flavor thanks to the hot, dry summer of 1945, which gave only a small crop, but of high quality grapes.
The bottle in question was expected to raise between $56,000 and $78,000, but Christie’s managed to sell it for a staggering $123,919 to a private collector from the U.S. The value of this Romanée-Conti wine is especially great because it marked the end of one of the most horrible wars ever – World War II.
