18 litre bottle of wine expected to sell for £5,000

275x250.jpgA rare 18 litre bottle of 2006 Chateau Cheval Blanc is set to sell at auction for an estimated fee of around £5,000.

The massive melchior bottle measures 75cm tall and has a circumference of 70cm, it weighs a hefty 25kg and could pour 144 glasses of wine.

Experts say it is "phenomenally rare" for a quality wine to be bottled at this size - particularly for a Bordeaux.

Chateau Cheval Blanc has been one of the world's most highly respected wines for the past 100 years and in 1995 receives the highest rank of Premier Grand Cru Classé (A) status.

The bottle is due to go under the hammer at Sotheby's tomorrow -- which doesn't give you long to reinforce the wine rack.
