There is no telling the lengths a wine connoisseur will go to to possess and drink a great bottle of wine. Especially one with deep pockets. A 1947 French Cheval-Blanc 6-liter bottle of wine in a rare Imperial format just sold for $304,375 to a Swiss collector. This price smashes the world record as the most expensive wine ever sold at auction.

The $304,375 wine was created in a very hot year, which concentrated the fruit aromas. The quality of this particular vintage is so high that auction sales typically fetch astronomical prices.
