1996 dom perignon rose gold

We would ask all the wine aficionados to brace yourselves, for the King of Champagnes has been snapped up by a Russian tycoon who wishes to remain, well, nameless. What is believed to be the most expensive wine bottle ever sold at a British bar, the $53,000 methuselah of 1996 Dom Perignon Rose Gold 6 liter bottle was drunk by “six friends” in less than 45 minutes. After spilling three glasses, the generous drinker also paid $15,000 tip to make the occasion memorable for rest of the world.
