Price (in U.S.$) recently paid for a single bottle of Perrier Jouët Champagne vintage 1874, setting a new record for the most expensive Champagne sold during Christie’s “Finest and Rarest Wine & Spirits” auction in London. The price paid for a bottle of Perrier Jouët 1874 had previously set a record when that same vintage was sold at Christie’s in 1888 a title which it held, amazingly enough, for 79 years.
