$12,925: one of the most expensive bottles of champagne ever sold at auction

while the worlds oldest champagne (170 years old, discovered by divers uncovering a shipwreck in the baltic sea in 2010) was sold for a “novelty” (not drink-ability), price of 30,000 euros the krug bottle is just under 65 years old. the single bottle of a 1953, champagne krug clos du mesnil sold for $12,925. that’s $2,154 dollars a glass. silly. on another note a 1998 vintage clos du mesnil can be had for a bargain price of $799. buy one today. sell in 65 years. beat the stock market. by xy
