How expensive is a Space-aged rare wine?



Auction house Christie's are auctioning the Pétrus 2000 wine bottle brewed 14 months in space with hoping to reap $1 million.

On May 4 Christie's auction house started auction of the French wine Pétrus 2000 that has been put up in space for over a year. This is one of 12 wine bottles that researchers brought to the International Space Station (ISS) in November 2019 to explore the possibilities of agricultural activities outside the earth as well as the fermentation and effervescence process of wine bottles.

Wine experts tasted wine in Bordeaux (France) in March said the taste of wine has changed after 14 months in space.  According to Christie's, the wine bottle has been brewed in an unique environment, with almost no gravity.

One of the wine tasters said the flavor of the wine brought up on the ISS was slightly lighter and smoother than the taste of the same wine on earth.

If purchased for $1 million, this precious wine bottle would become the most expensive 750 ml standard wine bottle.  In 2018, New York auction house Sotheby's sold a bottle of Romanee-Conti Burgundy 1945 for $558,000 - the most expensive wine bottle ever sold.

The proceeds will go to the agricultural research fund for the next space missions.  Private auction means that buyers may not disclose their identity.

Pétrus is a wine producer in the Pomerol region near Bordeaux, and is considered one of the finest wine brands in the world.  A classic Pétrus 2000 bottle currently costs around $5,400.
