Wine especially old wine–needs to be very delicately handled. Wine likes to be stored in a cool humid environment. Consider this environment if you are planning on making your cellar your basement…you could be introducing a mold problem into your house by having it sit on top of a bunch of moisture. The best cellars are detached, well insulated, and secure. If this seems like too much, store your wines with a reputable storage facility.

Massandra Sherry (1775)

Massandra Sherry de la Frontera 1775, popularly known as the Massandra Sherry 1775 is one of the most expensive wines of Sothebys London in 2001. It came from the collection of Massandra Winery which is well known for its large collection (over a million) of both Russian and European vintage wines bearing the Imperial seal.

Wines from Chteau dyquem are characterised by their complexity, concentration and sweetness. A relatively high acidity helps to balance the wine's sweetness. Another characteristic for which Chteau d'Yquem wines are known is their longevity. With proper care, a bottle will keep for a century or more.

Chateau Lafite (1869)

Its no understatement to say that Chteau Lafite Rothschild is one of the iconic wines of the modern era. When the hammer came down on the extraordinary sale of a bottle of 1869 Chteau Lafite, history was made. It is the most expensive 750ml bottle of wine on the planet.

Montrachet (198)

The Montrachet vineyard is the jewel in the Crown of Burgundy's white wines. It is one of five Grand Cru sites (climats) located in a cluster around the Mont Rachet hill above Puligny-Montrachet. These vineyards produce some of the most expensive and rare wines in the world, often regarded as the ultimate expression of the Chardonnay grape variety.

Romanee Cont, DRC (1990)

One of the prime reasons for the high price of this wine is the extremely low yield of the soil in the area of France

1994 Cabernet Sauvignon, a perfect wine. Representing the essence of cassis liqueur intermixed with blackberries, minerals, licorice and toast, this full-bodied, multi-dimensional Classic is fabulous, with extraordinary purity, symmetry and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute.
