Short-changed: Wine Searcher loses sight of China on fifty most expensive wines list


By Jim Boyce

Wine Searcher recently posted a list of the fifty most expensive wines in the world. In what might be a major slight — or, perhaps, a lack of trips to Shandong province, or, maybe, just maybe, an absence in the site’s database — Wine Searcher lost sight of a pricy bottle from China.

That Chateau Junding pictured above weighs in at a heavily bodied rmb27,898. At today’s rates, that converts to USD4,575 and would put it in ninth place on the Wine Searcher list, between some highly regarded burgundies — Domaine Georges & Christophe Roumier Musigny Grand Cru (USD4,649) and Domaine Leroy Musigny Grand Cru (USD4,479).

If anyone wants to splurge on these wines, I’d be interested in joining a blind tasting of the three.

You can see the full list of fifty wines here.
