“Luxury is a state of mind…”
Luxury is synonymous to exclusivity, uniqueness and quality. Luxury can be found in many different ways and things, and for those who seek high standards when it comes to buying a product, the price is the last thing they think of. Champagne is one of those products that attracts people’s attention since it is a symbol of luxury, quality and celebrations, however, some brands they went above and beyond what the market offers and they decided to create the most unreal masterpieces of bottles of Champagnes to satisfy their most exclusive and affluent clientele.
3 Of the most expensive Champagne Bottles in the world.
There are plenty of people out there that are willing to buy expensive Gourmet food and drinks just because of its quality and uniqueness. A good Champagne can be highly-priced depending on many things, such as the way the grapes were picked, the brand, or because of the number of bottles produced a year.
Let’s see the top 3 expensive bottles of Champagnes in history:
- Goût de Diamants: Also called Taste of Diamonds, the price of this Champagne is $2.07 Million – £1.2 Million. The Goût de Diamants winegrowers’ house has just created an unprecedented bottle of champagne at 1.4 million euros! Originally, it was the English brand Goût de Diamant that wanted to create an exceptional bottle for its private clientele. Their basic bottles all already have a Swarowsky Diamond-encrusted at the bottom. But this time they wanted to go even further by creating a true masterpiece reserved for their most prestigious clients. Their most expensive masterpiece is a bottle designed by designer Alexander Amosu, a past master in adding gold and diamonds, the famous designer reproduced the Superman logo in solid 18k white gold, in the centre of which he placed a 19k diamond, there where Goût de Diamants usually places a Swarowsky crystal on its traditional bottles. The label is also in 18k white gold and features the customer’s name engraved. All done by hand by goldsmiths with rare materials. However, this high price is reduced to “only” around $350 if we look for this Champagne in its version without Diamonds.
- Armand de Brignac Rose 30-Liter: This is probably the celebrities’ Champagne brand. The most expensive bottle’s price tag is $90.000 approximate and its capacity is 30-litre. It is a massive 30-litre vessel, known as a Melchizedek, equivalent to 40 regular-sized 750 ml bottles and weighs 100 pounds. The bottle’s name, Midas, comes from King Midas, remembered in Greek mythology for the ability to turn whatever he touched to gold.
- Dom Perignon Rose Gold Methuselah: The 1996 Dom Perignon Rose Gold cost approximately $49,000. It’s a Cuvee Prestige Champagne produced by the prestigious Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy group. Its origins can be traced back to the Abbey of Saint Pierre d’Hautvillers in northern France – the so-called birthplace of Champagne, making this edition probably the most prestigious one of the brand. One of the other reasons that make this Champagne expensive is because only 35 bottles are produced per year that is gold plated. The colour of this sophisticated sparkling wine is totally different from that of classic champagne, as it adopts a vintage pink hue, which gives it a special flavour.
Would you buy any of these Champagne bottles?
