Yquem 1787
Yquem 1787
A day late on this one but the worlds most expensive wine bottle...

NewsWire
"One wine connoisseur has just bought what is thought to be the most expensive bottle of white wine in the world at US$100,000 (£55,000): a 1787 vintage Sauternes from Chateau Yquem. Stephen Williams, Managing Director of Antique Wine Company (was interviewed by him for a job once... didn't stand an earthly....) who sourced and completed the deal, said: "We have been working for some time on this commission and the purchaser is a long standing customer of ours. Even though we regularly work on commissions to source rare wines this one has been particularly gratifying. "This is really a very rare wine and our client, a US based collector of fine wines, will treasure this prize to add to an already impressive collection." The valuable bottle was acquired by the Antique Wine Company from a private collector in France. Williams, who collected it in his private plane,will now fly to The United States to complete his mission by personally delivering the wine to his US client. When asked if this is rather a fuss over a bottle of wine Williams replied, "Not really, it might be the most expensive and pampered travelling companion I've ever had, but providing highly personal service is what our business is all about, and at £10,000 per glass I have to be sure that our client is left with a sweet taste in his mouth".
