- Tuesday 21 July 2009
Le Clos boasts some of the world’s most sought after wines, including Château Petrus 1947 ($12,500/bottle), Château Cheval Blanc 1961 in magnum ($15,750) and Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2005 ($27,778/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, with France, Italy and the US heavily represented. South Africa, Spain, Australia, Chile and New Zealand make up the rest of the collection, alongside high-end spirits such as 40-year-old single malts.
One of the quirkier items for sale is a $125K Dom Perignon guitar case.
The store is run by Maritime and Mercantile International (MMI), a subsidiary of The Emirates Group.
