How much is that per sip?
An amateur wine group paid a record 57,000 euros ($77,000) Saturday for a 237-year-old bottle of wine from France’s eastern Jura region at a local wine festival auction.
“Finally, yellow wine has hit the big leagues,” said wine festival founder Bernard Badoz of Jura’s trademark beverage.
“To sell a bottle for 57,000 euros is not crazy,” he said of the 1773 bottle that came from a Louis XV-era vine and grapes harvested during the reign of Louis XVI.
Selling it for that amount isn’t crazy but buying it for that sure is.
