“NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — From a box of Franzia to a bottle of 1961 Chateau Petrus, there are few drinks with such a wide range of quality and cost as wine.
…This Sunday, an Imperial of a 1961 vintage of Chateau Petrus (which is the equivalent of eight regular bottles) is expected to sell for $150,000 at an auction at the Columbia Yacht Club in Chicago. That would make it one of the most expensive bottles of wine ever sold at auction.”
The article goes on to mention that the most expensive bottle of wine sold to date was a 1945 Chateau Mouton-Rothschild that realized $310,700 at Sotheby’s in February, 2007.
