I have a birthday coming up next week and so my wife asked me to make a list of what I would like as a present.

The following is a list of the price, per 750ml bottle, of the world's most expensive red wines.

10. Chateau Margaux 2009 – $4,062
9. Domaine de la Romanee-Conti 1990 – $20,975
8. Chateau Mouton-Rothschild 1945 – $23,000
7. Chateau Lafite 1865 – $24,577
6. Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon 1941 – $24,675
5. Cheval Blanc 1947 – $33,781
4. Penfolds Grange Hermitage 1951 – $38,420
3. Chateau Lafite 1787 – $160,000
2. Chateau Margaux 1787 – $500,000
1. Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon 1992 – $500,000

Asking for all of them would just be plain greedy, so I'll let her choose.


  1. Happy Birthday least it must be your birthday by now. Which bottle did you receive?
    Seriously-- in the main, I associate you with Proust. That's why you &or your scribe are forgiven for misspelling Jane Austen's name, below.
    I will buy your wine book, assuming that Jane's name is correctly spelled therein (Marcel wouldn't like it if it weren't). Health & happiness to you!

  2. You are quite correct. Unfortunately, after half-an-hour futilely hunting around the blog, I cannot find how to edit/ correct my horrible mistake. But don't worry, she is correctly spelled in the actual book.
