Most Expensive Champaign Bottles
Champagne is an extraordinary universe when it comes to price. The amount of land is limited and this makes the competition for the best grapes among the top intense. In addition, the champagne making process is expensive and this increases the prices too. The vintage and non-vintage Champagne price is determined as much by marketing as by quality.
Often served in festivities and celebrations, champagne eventually emerged in restaurants and bars. However, only the elite enjoy and experience it since a few names still carry a heavy price tag. The four most expensive champagnes below are not only extremely rare but exceptional too.
1. Gout de Diamants, Taste of diamonds - $ 2.07 Million
Gout de Diamants is special not only because of the Champagne inside the bottle but the extraordinarily crafted bottle decorated with an expertly cut Swarovski crystal nestled in a pewter that looks like the Superman logo. Alexander Amosu created the rare classic bottle.
2. Moet & Chandon Dom Perignon Charles & Diana 1961 - $ 4,309
A bottle of Dom Perignon Charles and Diana 1961 from Moet and Chandon’s house costs $4,309. The champagne emerged in 1961, the year Princess Diana was born. In addition, it was the official champagne served at Princess Diana and Prince Charles royal wedding.
