Highest Wine Prices in the World?

In the quest to keep pace with international trend-setters, last night I ambled over to the Ritz-Carlton in Moscow, where the Obamas stayed during their visit earlier in the week. The glass-roofed bar at the top of the Ritz gives magnificent views of the Kremlin and offers an excellent wine list, but the prices are, let us say, a bit elevated. Indeed, I don’t think I’ve seen higher prices anywhere, even Tokyo. Here’s a selected list of bottles and their prices (in dollars): Rupert & Rothschild Baron Edmond ($300), NV Laurent Perrier ($500), ’01 Tignanello ($1170), ’03 Opus One ($1930), and ’98 Dom Perignon ($2770). Just a glass of Castello di Ama Rosato costs $30, a relative bargain! Are these the highest wine prices in the world?
