10. Cheval Blanc St-Emilion 1947 – £97,000
Occupying the tenth position is a world-class vintage wine, that sold for £97,000 in 2006.

As far as we know, just 110,000 bottles were produced and only a few have managed to survive. Considered by the best sommeliers in the world as the finest Cheval Blanc in the twentieth century, the Cheval Blanc St-Emilion 1947 has a sensual flavour and luxurious texture.
