Rare and special wines are always expensive. More than a unique delight for your taste buds, they are perfect collection items for the rich luxury lovers. Here you have a list of the top nine most expensive wines, which you can use to simply get informed, or as a shopping list. It really all depends on the thickness of your wallet.

1. Screaming Eagle Cab 1992

Sold for the whooping sum of $500,000, the Imperial of Screaming Eagle Cab 1992 was actually part of a charitable action. It was auctioned off at the Napa Valley Wine Auction in 2000 to Cisco Systems executive Chase Bailey.

2. Chateau Lafite 1787

Now let us start with the non-charity purchases. The second most expensive bottle of wine went for $160,000 at Christie’s London, over 25 years ago (in 1985). Bearing Thomas Jefferson’s initials on the glass, the bottle was purchased for Forbes collection.

3. Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1945

Another Christie’s star was the Jeroboam Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1945, which fetched the amazing sum of $114,614. It was considered to be one of the best vintages of the 20th century when it was auctioned off in London in 1997.

4. Chateau d’Yquem 1784

Also marked by Tomas Jefferson’s initials is the third most expensive bottle of wine, the Chateau d’Yquem 1784. The bottle went for $56,588 at Christie’s London in 1986.

5. Massandra Sherry 1775

The 1775 Sherry was part of the Massandra Collection and it was sold in 2001 for $43,500 at Sotheby’s London. The Massandra wine cellars contain almost one million different bottles of Western European wines and Russian ones. This particular one was the oldest in the Western European collection.

6. Romanee Conti 1990

This time we’re talking about more than one bottle. It is a set of eight Romanee Conti, DRC 1990, which sold for $224,900 at Sotheby’s London in 1996. It is not the oldest wine in the world, but its quality made each bottle cost $28,112.

7. Le Montrachet 1978

Seven bottles of this select wine were sold in 2001 at Sotheby’s New York. Each Le Montrachet went for $23,929.

8. Screaming Eagle 1994

Christie’s Los Angeles had the honor of selling these three bottles of Screaming Eagle 1994 in 2000. Each bottle managed to fetch $3,833.

9. Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1982

From several bottles we move on to fifty cases. That’s six hundred bottles of Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1982, each worth $700 in 1997. With a cumulated price of $420,000, the cases were sold at Christie’s/Zachy’s New York.
