Wine Tasting Dos And Don'ts

Three Most Expensive and Delicious Wines in the World

Some people buy expensive bottles of wine as investments. Others purchase them for the simple reason that they taste so good. Mere mortals may not be able to afford the most-costly bottles of wine available. But wine lovers and connoisseurs will certainly enjoy learning about the following three most expensive and delicious wines on the planet.

Taste of Diamonds

Although there are perhaps bottles of champagne tastier than this one, Taste of Diamonds is undoubtedly the most expensive. That’s not to say this is not delicious champagne, but at the cost of $2.07 million per bottle, even super-rich folk may struggle to buy a bottle to find out if it’s as good as the champagne maker says. Containing an aromatic blend of Grand Cru Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, and Pinot Noir, this 2013 champagne offers a light floral scent with an elegant creamy texture and a light finish. Why is this champagne so expensive? The reason has to do with more than just the drink’s taste. The bottle’s handcrafted signature logo is made up of 18-carat solid gold. And in the center of the design is a single deep-cut 19-carat diamond. Although Taste of Diamonds would make a loving gift, most mortals will have to settle for something less expensive. The good news is, there are many excellent affordable champagnes available. If you want to give your loved one a bottle of bubbly for a special occasion, make your gift extra special by buying a hamper that contains a bottle of Moet or sparkling wine. Gift hampers for Valentine’s day are ideal romantic presents you can buy without breaking the bank.

Eroboam of Chateau Mouton-Rothschild

It should not be surprising to find out that one of the wealthiest families on the planet produces one of the world’s most expensive and tastiest wines. The 1945 Eroboam of Chateau Mouton-Rothschild comes from vineyards belonging to the billionaire Nathaniel Rothschild. The wine is considered to be one of the best vintages of the twentieth century. With a full-bodied texture and distinctive tastes that hint of green moss, mint, pine needles, dried cherries, and sweet raspberries, the Eroboam of Chateau Mouton-Rothschild is a treat for any nose and tongue. A bottle will cost you $310,700, but if you cannot afford that, you could always buy a single glass. That will set you back only $8,631.

Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon

The most expensive bottle of wine to sell at auction to date is this $500,000 1992 Cabernet Sauvignon. You may expect the best wines in the world to come from Italy, France or Chile, but this wine is a product of Oakville, California. Small quantities of wine-grapes grow in the region, which is one reason why this beautiful wine has achieved cult status. The wine is unfiltered during the bottling process, which helps to give it a distinctive flavor. Along with being aged in 60% new oak, the opaque-purple Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon has a fragrant aroma of fruity blackcurrants and a subtle hint of oak. This wine is undoubtedly one of the most expensive and delicious wines in the whole world.
