Credit crunch? Yeah right. One Beijing-based billionaire has splashed out a record $500,000 on 27 bottles of red wine. It’s all Romanee Conti. Here’s what he bought:

12 bottles of Romanee Conti 1978, two bottles of the 1961, 1966, 1996 and 2003 and single bottles of the 1981, 1990, 1992, 1995, 1999, 2001 and 2002.

“It is the highest price that has ever been achieved for a single lot,” Managing Director Stephen Williams of the London- based Antique Wine Company told Reuters. Here’s the full story <link>.

The article reports the buyer bought them to drink not as an investment. That is some mixed dozen.
