Sotheby's to Auction 18L Bottle of 2006 Chateau Cheval Blanc
Attention wine connoiseurs and collectors, here's a truly fun and iconic bottle to add your collection: an 18L bottle of 2006 Chateau Cheval Blanc. Measuring 75cm tall and weighting in at 25 kg, it's huge when compared to a standard 750ml bottle and holds 144 glasses of wine. Not only is it 'phenomenally rare' to have such a large bottle of wine but also, apparently, it's rare for it to be a Bordeaux variety. For those interested it will be going up for auction as part of Sotheby's Finest and Rarest Wines and Vintage Port offerings this week and is expected to go for upwards of £3,600.
