Most Expensive Bottle of White Wine...Ever

The 1787 vintage of Sauternes from Chateau d'Yquem was recently sold at auction for a cool US$90,000. The plan is for the seller to personally fly it in his private plane from London to the US-based buyer.

The wine is made from shrivelled up, late harvested grapes that allows it to age for such a long time without going bad. The wine has been tested and re-corked twice already, once in 1980 and once in 1991.

At $15k a glass, here's hoping that it's still that way.
