The September and October issues of Schweizerische Weinzeitung (The Swiss Wine Magazine) featured two extensive articles on the most expensive wines in the world, using Liv-ex data and research.
Unsurprisingly, wines from Burgundy dominate the two lists. Only three non-Burgundians feature in the top 100 reds: Le Pin 1982, Screaming Eagle 1992, and Domaine Jean Louis Chave, Ermitage Cathelin 1990.
However, the most expensive white wine comes from Germany. Egon Muller, Scharzhofberger Riesling TBA 2017 commands a Market Price of £138,180 per case, having risen 5% in the past year.
Two other vintages of the same wine feature in the top ten: 2010 and 1999. As the table below highlights, Egon Muller sits comfortably in the rankings and positions itself next to the big names of Burgundy – Domaine Leflaive, Montrachet and DRC, Montrachet.
