Champagne may be the drink of choice. Especially amongst those of a higher class. It’s often consumed in celebration of special occasions. However, there are bottles that command a high price tag.
We’ll be going over a list of the 10 most expensive champagne bottles in the world. You’ll be amazed by how much money was spent on a bottle of ‘bubbly’. Sure, there are bottles of scotch and wine that go for a ton of money.
Yet, would you purchase a fortune on a bottle of champagne? Let’s take a look at the following list of most expensive champagne bottles in the world right now.
1. Gout de Diamonts, Taste of Diamonds
First up, we have Gout de Diamonts or ‘Taste of Diamonds’. This was sold for approximately $2.5 million, making it one of the most expensive bottles sold in history. Entrepreneurial siblings Giovaanni and Piero Buono purchased the bottle at a private sale.
They stated that they won’t open up the bottle. Instead, they intend to use it for their NFT projects. The Italian brothers are cryptocurrency entrepreneurs that have made a fortune in the newly minted market that features the famous ‘Bored Ape’ and others.
Just like the cryptocurrencies they’ve invested in, they intend to ‘HODL’ for a long period of time. Giovanni has made his living early in the digital currencies such as Bitcoin while Piero is involved with the fashion industry with his eyewear brand, Good’s.
How long will they hang onto this bottle of champagne? If anything else, it could be a long time before the ownership changes hands yet again. It might even go for much higher in price.
2. 2013 Armand de Brignac Rose
This limited edition champagne has a price tag of $275000 per bottle. The bottle is made from rose gold and pink colored metal. Inside is a blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay grapes. This has a mix of floral and fruity flavors.
The Armand de Brignac brand is owned by world famous hip hop superstar Jay-Z. He introduced another one of his champagnes in Las Vegas years ago.
Anyone lucky enough to go to a tasting will get to enjoy this. Those with plenty of cash to burn might want the whole bottle if they enjoy it a lot. There’s no denying that this near decade old champagne will get better with age.
Champagne is the go-to for celebration. If you want to drop $275000 on a bottle of this, there’s bound to be a bottle of it somewhere. Once you get your hands on it, drink and be merry.
3. 1996 Dom Perignon Rose Gold Methuselah
Talk about a fitting name for this near 30 year old champagne. This was sold for a price at $49000. Even crazier is that the bottle is six liters.
This bottle is covered in rose gold. The contents itself has a velvety texture and a flavor profile that is rich and complex. Champagne collectors consider this Dom Perignon one of the most expensive bottles (and even one of their favorites).
If you have $49000 and an enthusiast for champagne, you too might want to get your hands on a bottle of this. Who knows – you might also hold onto it for a long time and sell it for a higher price. If two Italian brothers plan on doing it with one bottle of champagne that we’ve mentioned earlier, why not you?
4. 1928 Krug
Next, we have a vintage bottle of 1928 Krug. This has a price tag of $21,200 per bottle. It has flavors that are quite rich, making it really enjoyable.
What makes it special is that the grapes made with this were harvested during a warm year. On top of that, it has been aged for over 70 years. For that reason, it’s rare and highly sought after among vintage enthusiasts.
Even more surprising is that the price of a bottle seems like a steal of a deal. If we knew any better, it should be priced more. But nevertheless, if you ever find yourself trying this out, let us know.
Some say that trying something so old may seem a little gross. However, in the case of certain beverages like champagne, wine, or scotch – they do get better and even tastier with age.
5. 1959 Dom Perignon
Next on our list happens to be another vintage champagne. This is the 1959 Dom Perignon. It’s priced at $4100 per bottle and has an unforgettable flavor like nothing else. At over 60 years old, how can you say no to a fine champagne quite like this?
After all, it carries the venerable Dom Perignon name. So it has to be good, right? 1959 was also a great year for grape harvesting as the weather was quite ideal.
As you may have noticed, grapes harvested in warmer climates tend to bring out the best taste. Let’s not forget the rich aroma that it has. It contains notes of oriental tobacco, licorice, fig, and honey.
If you are looking for great taste, a delightful smell, and something that may be hands down one of the best champagnes ever made – the 1959 Dom Perignon could just be the one can’t-miss bottle that any enthusiast or collector should get their hands on.
6. Krug Clos d’Ambonnay
This bottle of champagne goes for $3500 per bottle and is made 100 percent from Pinot Noir grapes. It’s also aged in oak barrels for years before finally being bottled. Not only that, it is considered to be a rare champagne.
It’s a carefully crafted champagne that had created the first bottle back in 1995. However, it wasn’t until 12 years later until it was introduced to the public. According to the Krug family, it was considered one of their best kept secrets.
So well kept that not everyone in the family knew about it. If that isn’t the most interesting story behind a bottle of champagne, we don’t know what is. If you are looking for the best kept secret at another steal of a deal, there’s no way any champagne lover would want to pass this up.
7. 2002 Louis Roederer Cristal Gold Limited Edition
Up next is the limited edition 2002 Louis Roederer Cristal Gold. This is made from a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The flavor is refreshing and crisp.
Its label is covered in gold and is priced at $2800 per bottle. Nevertheless, the texture is soft like velvet and has an aroma that is more fruitier than others. It even has a combination of roasted hazelnuts, citrus fruits, cocoa, and sweet flower.
Nevertheless, it’s quite the combination for a champagne. If you love something with a fruity flavor mixed with some chocolate and caramel among others, this has to be one of the finest champagnes out there. Even at the price, it’s worth a try.
If you got the cash to burn, the last thing you want to do is pass up the opportunity to give this a try. Why not – after all it’s quite tasty for its age.
8. 1953 Perrier-Jouet
Next up is a near 70 year old sparkling champagne that is absolutely unforgettable. Priced at $6000 per bottle, it’s not too shabby of a price for a vintage champagne.
If you’re looking for something that will give your taste buds the satisfaction it deserves, make sure you snag this. At $6000 per bottle, you don’t want to miss out if you got the cash.
9. 2005 Dom Perignon Rose Gold
It’s covered in rose gold, blended with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and has a flavor like nothing else. Not bad for $2150 per bottle. This champagne may be years younger than its Methuselah label.
Yet, you can expect it to taste just as vibrant.
10. Shipwrecked Champagne
Before we go further with this last champagne, let’s get one thing out of the way – it’s not a brand of champagne. Nor is it something made by a prestigious label. In fact, this is a kind of champagne that is found amongst ship wreckage in the waters of the world.
On average, these bottles of champagne will go for at least $15000 per bottle on average. Some of them are around 200 years old. There may be a bottle somewhere on the ocean floor that tastes amazing.
Divers might discover it and sell it to the highest bidder. Maybe a collector will be lucky enough to snag it themselves.
These expensive bottles of champagne are rare and not as available as the others. If there’s a slight abundance of them, they can still carry hefty price tags. These bottles really add a touch of class to what champagne already exudes.
If you are a collector or someone who appreciates champagne, you might have a difficult time finding some of these. You might find a few bottles of some of these champagnes online. Yet, that’s not always a guarantee.
For that reason, you may want to get in when the gettin’ is good.
