One of the reasons why a bottle of wine is so costly is because of its rareness. The more rare the wine, the costly it is. The rare wines are not always coming in a limited edition or number. It is also because the producers reduce the number of distributions and the grape’s quality and quantity. Indeed, the price of rare wine is costly because the producers produce it in a limited number. Let say a producer produces not more than 500 bottles of wine only. Take a look at the rarest wine below.
Krug Clos d’Ambonnay Blanc de Noirs
It is one of the rarest champagne on the market. It was released for the first time in 1995. Krug Clos d’Ambonnay Blanc de Noirs becomes a rare wine for the start. The vineyard can only produce about 4.500 bottles. The result is coming from 1.7 acres of vineyard in the Champagne region. It will be rare after 12 to 15 years on the market.
2004 Penfold Block 42 Kalimna Cabernet Sauvignon Ampoule
Imagine that there are only twelve Ampoules released in 2012. The reason behind the very small production is the exclusivity of the wine. The 2004 Penfold Block 42 Kalimna Cabernet Sauvignon Ampoule has great detail and craftsmanship. The unique design attracts collectors to keep this wine.
Petrus, Pomerol, 1999
This is one of the most popular rare wines in France. One thing that makes this wine attractive is the deep purple color. The unique color is coming from a blend of Merlot and Cabernet France grapes in a perfect percentage. There are only 2500 bottles of Petrus Pomerol 1999. It comes from a 17 acres vineyard. Experts predict that the cost will rise significantly in 2006 and 2025. It is the time that the wine is ready to open or mature enough. The price reaches $2218 from $733 per 750 ml per bottle at first.
Domaine de la Romanee
Drinkers love to enjoy Domaine de la Romanee because of the flavor. The liquid creates mushroom, smoke, delicate spices, and berries in the mouth. Unfortunately, the Romanee Conti vineyard can only produce not more than 450 cases each year due to the small size of the plot. One of the rarest versions is the 1972 Domaine de la Romanee Conti. It has been over 53 years now and it closes to its full maturity. The cost was $1.265 per 750 ml bottle in 2000. Now, it raises to $11.284 per 750 ml bottle.
The strong characteristics of this red wine are the fruit scent. The scent is coming from black cherry and blackcurrant. Based on the year of the making, experts predict that this wine reaches its maturity level in 2025. Cote-Rotie 2009 is hard to find right now. It seems that collectors keep this wine for investment. Imagine that the price was only $88 per 750 ml bottle.
