Dubai International Airport’s new fine wine and spirits shop is to sell some of the world’s rarest wines in the world – duty free.

The wines in « Le Clos » include Château Petrus 1947 ($12,500/  bottle), Château Cheval Blanc 1961 in magnum ($15,750) and Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2005 ($27,770/ bottle).

The shop also stocks a number of New World wines, including vintages from Napa icons Opus One, Harlan Estate and Screaming Eagle.

Retail outlets of “Le Clos” have opened in the First Class Lounge and on the shopping concourse in Terminal 3 – the largest airport terminal in the world.

The shop lists over 400 wines from France, Italy, the US, South Africa, Spain, Australia, Chile and New Zealand.

It also sells spirits including a 40-year-old single malt, and visitors can even pick up a $125K Dom Perignon guitar case.

There are several options for buying. You can pre-order through the online store and collect your bottles in the store before you fly out of Dubai.

Or if you are making a return journey back into Dubai you can choose your wines ahead of time and pick them up after your flight.
