Really, really old D'yquem - Is it worth the big bucks?!!

Charles Yu | | Jul 26, 2011 03:39 PM

I just came across the news on BBC that a bottle of 1811 Chateau D'Yquem was sold for US$120,000. Making it the most expensive bottle of White wine ever auctioned. Thats about $10,000 a glass!
The oldest D' Yquem I've ever tasted was only a 1975. It was quite something! At about $70 a glass, that, I can take. However, when it comes to three or four figures per glass. Is it really worth it? Will one be paying for just a sweet tangarine skin, burnt caramel solution? Ha!
