Wine Not

Costco has been known to sell some crazy things, but you might not think about the mega warehouse chain as a place to get rare wine. Well, rethink that, because their bulk pricing is alive and well in the acclaimed French wine department. 

Check out these seven crazy wine deals from Costco, all of which are more than $15,000.

Chateau Haut Brion 48 Bottle Collector's Set (1970-2017)

1. Château Haut-Brion 48 Bottle Collector's Set (1970-2017)

Price $48,999.99

Available at Costco

A Burbank, California, Costco sells this one

, which isn't much of a surprise. It's also not a surprise that Château Haut-Brion is known for making some of the finest wines on the planet. The craziest part is that at an average of about a grand per bottle, this isn't even the most expensive single bottle of wine on this list.

Chateau Margaux 25 Bottle Collector's Set (1979-2005)

2. Château Margaux 25 Bottle Collector's Set (1979-2005)

Price: $39,999.99

Available at Costco

This winery is situated in the prestigious Margaux appellation of Bordeaux, which wine people go nuts for. The ability to taste some wine from the '80s is fun, but how do you justify a special enough occasion to pop open that 1979 bottle? It's making me anxious just thinking about it. 

Chateau Latour 30 Bottle Collector's Set (1985-2014)

3. Château Latour 30 Bottle Collector's Set (1985-2014)

Price: $37,999.99

Chateau Petrus 6 Bottle Collectors Set (2007-2012)

4. Château Petrus 6 Bottle Collectors Set (2007-2012)

Price: $34,999.99

Available at Costco

It's an average of almost $6,000 a bottle, in case you're wondering. Château Petrus is one of the most sought-after wines in the world, so who knows? Maybe you can sell it for a profit one day. Enjoy it, I mean. That's what I meant to say. Enjoy it.

Domaine De La Romanee-Conti 4 Bottle Set (2018)

6. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 4 Bottle Set (2018)

Price: $29,999.99

Available at Costco

Okay, YIKES. 30 large for just four bottles. That's $7,500 a bottle. I'm not sure how somebody is meant to properly savor and experience wine from a bottle that expensive, but being told the price beforehand certainly wouldn't help.

Dom Perignon Champagne 24 Bottle Set (1976-2012)

7. Dom Pérignon Champagne 24 Bottle Set (1976-2012)

Price: $17,499.99

Available at Costco

This is probably the first Champagne I think of when I think about rich a-holes toasting to themselves on a boat in Martha's Vineyard. Primarily that's because this is just about the only expensive Champagne I can name, but clearly if you're paying almost 20 grand for a case, it fits the bill.
