Expensive Taste

What is a 1787 Chateau Lafite with Thomas Jefferson's inital's carvered int0 the bottle worth? Or how about fifty Cases of 1982 Chateau Mouton-Rothschild? Or perhaps 6 magnums of 1990 Romanée-Conti, DRC? $160,000, 420,000, and 69,600 respectively. Gift Baskets Lot has put together a list of most expensive wines by category of all time and for a wine lover, it is a fun list to read through. My favorite is the Most Expensive Bottle of Wine Ever Broken - a 1787 Chateau Margaux which was knocked over by a waiter before it was opened. Luckily the bottle was insured and the insurance company paid out $225,000. You have to be careful with the 1787 vintages.
