Luxurysafes blog will talk about wine today. Few days before Christmass it is worth to mention about exclusive wine, which can add the taste to the this special night. Thinking of picking up a bottle of wine for dinner on Christmass? It might be a good idea to give these bottles a wide berth as they currently are the most costly exclusive wine in the world.
The common assumption that old wine is expensive wine has held true, according to this article. And while the prices are astronomical, it has been described as one of the best wine on the planet.
Wine lovers with a taste for fancy decanters and very deep pockets can now pick up a bottle of a rare Australian vintage for $142,000. Winemaker Penfolds on Wednesday released six-liter (1.5 US gallon) offerings of its 2012 Grange Imperial, each stored in a crystal serving vessel made by French glassmaker Saint-Louis.
Each hand-blown decanter holds the equivalent of eight regular-sized bottles of wine, a volume that would normally sell for a total of Aus $6,800.
The “rare and refined” crystal decanter promises owners the “perfect pour”, said Penfolds, which is best known in Australia for its Grange Shiraz. Its 2008 version, launched three years ago, earned a perfect 100 score from Robert Parker’s US wine magazine Wine Advocate.
