The list of wines and figures mentioned below have been compiled from various sources around the web, such as Beautiful Life & Finances Online.

20. Screaming Eagle Sauvignon Blanc – $5,850

Starting off our list is the most expensive Sauvignon Blanc in the world – Screaming Eagle Sauvignon Blanc. A bottle of this stuff will cost you a cool $5,850.

This wine originates from Oakville, which is a small town in the United States, between Rutherford and Yountville.

The wine is produced in limited quantities every year and then sold to private buyers are loyal fans.

19. 1949 Domaine Leroy Richebourg Grand Cru – $5,921

Next up, we have a bottle of wine that is only produced for the wealthy: around 700 bottles are made annually.

Adding to the charm of this vintage wine and boosting its price is its postworld war appeal, which provides the wine with some historical character and a higher perceived value.

18. Domaine Leroy Chambertin Grand Cru 1990 – $7,447

The 1949 Domaine Leroy Richebourg Grand Cru is slightly more expensive than the previous 1949 Domaine. The grapes are harvested from the Pinot Noir vineyards of Chambertin Grand Cru, which are very exclusive vineyards. It has a deep, rich scent of plums, red cherries and spices and is the eighteenth most expensive wine in the world!

17. Domaine Georges & Christophe Roumier Musigny Grand Cru 1990 – $11,720

Le Musigny vineyard only produces 380 bottles a year of this vintage Pinot Noir, helping to maintain its exclusivity. The hot temperature of the year gave the grapes more concentration, thicker skins, flavour, and tannin.

Therefore, if you’re looking for a wine that will go well with duck or any game birds, then this would be a perfect choice, presuming you have a spare $11,720!

16. Scharzhofberger Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese – $13,615

Produced by German producer Egon Muller, the Scharzhofberger Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese will set you back $13,615.

The wine is best known for having individual floral notes, a lime syrup taste and texture, and a deep intense impact when you drink it.

Being one of the most expensive wines in the world, it should have a pretty big impact!

15. Domaine Leroy Musigny Grand Cru 2012 – $14,450

Described as a magical and sumptuous wine, the Grand Cru has a flowery taste and a gentle, silky texture.

If we were to sell the wine based on the state’s reputation alone, then it’s without a doubt worth every drop.

However, the hot tail-end of the summer in 2012 provided this wine with robustness like no other, so it can demand such a high price.

14. Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Romanee-Conti Grand Cru 1990 – $21,200

Next on the list of the most expensive wines in the world is the RomaneeConti Romanee-Conti Grand Cru 1990.

A bottle of this vintage red will cost you $21,200, but according to experts, it’s well worth the investment.

1990 produced a fantastic wine, due to a well-balanced harvest, rich in plentiful healthy grapes.

13. Penfolds Grange Hermitage 1951 – $38,000
