Welcome to the most expensive red wines at Harrods top ten, and what a collection. From a 2003 Château Lafite-Rothschild to a 1982 Château Petrus Merlot you’ll be spoilt for choice when nosing this little lot. They’re definitely wines for the collector but wine should be drunk and so can you be on these bottles ranging from £2500 to £9000.
1. Château Petrus 1982 Merlot Wine 75cl
£8,995.00 / Product Code: 393715
Many people invest in stocks, shares and gold but after reading this little snippet I think most of you with Squillions will be investing heavily in a bottle or two of the red stuff.
Can you believe that the average price for this bottle of Château Petrus 1982 Merlot Wine 75cl in 2007 was a mere £2400 but now some five years later this fruity red meat treat is tipping the top of the table at a nose sniffing £9k a bottle. Pomerol is the home of Merlot though so you’re paying for history.
If you like your wine fine and at a premium and don’t mind getting giddy before even having a sniff at the “violets, leather and meaty whiffs this little Pomerol gives off, then get on down to Harrods and bag a bottle of Château Petrus 1982.
2. Château Petrus 1995 Merlot Wine 150cl
£5,500.00 / Product Code: 2230172
In the same vein as our number one in the Most Expensive Red Wines At Harrods top ten, we have another Château Petrus 1995 merlot wine, only twice the size.
This dry red Pomerol Grand Vin will wet your taste buds and is exceedingly good at bringing back childhood memories, this Château Petrus 1995 tastes of chocolate, cigars and blackcurrents (cassis) – yes a funny childhood. The experts recommend you drink this red princess between 2020 and 2030 by which time I can imagine the price tag will have doubled. Drink it? I’d sell it especially when you consider an average bottle cost £750 in 2007.
3. Château Petrus 1989 Merlot Wine 75cl
£4,995.00 / Product Code: 2140066
It looks like the house of Petrus has taken all top three places in our Squillions countdown and rightly so. This appellation is highly regarded amongst wine connoisseurs and the taste, nose and all the rest clearly understates the price and rising value.
This Château Petrus Merlot Wine bottled in 1989 is coming into its own, and if not going in the cellar rack until 2020 is a perfect match with almost any red meat but specifically venison or lamb. Wine is a definite mid term investment and if the value drops, it’s one hell of a meal after. View more iconic Château Petrus icons.

8. Château Lafite 1996 Petite Verdot 75cl
£2,695.00 / Product Code: 839795
As much as I enjoy a red wine with my roasts, and a good red wine certainly makes a difference to any beef or venison dishes, the terms wine connoisseurs use still take some getting used to.
This Château Lafite 1996 Petite Verdot is allegedly one of their better years, a vintage year, with scents of pencil shavings and cassis, as is so often the case with this appellation, what makes me crave for this wine is the mention that it is perfect with Beef Wellington. Experts declare a 2020 tasting for this Pauillac so there’s plenty of time to find a nice side of beef to go with this seductive heady red.
9. Château Lafite-Rothschild 1993 Magnum 150cl Cabernet Sauvignon
