£500 a Glass

Andrew Lloyd Webber has just sold a large part of his wine cellar (746 lots) for a tidy £3.5M, which isn't bad.   This included a case of Petrus 1982 for over £48,000, which I make to be £4,000 a bottle.  Now come on, I know 1982 was one of the greatest ever vintages in Bordeaux and Petrus is one of the greatest wines of Bordeaux and indeed the world, but I think I would have stopped bidding a bit earlier.
