If you think the selection of wines or spirits at some of the duty free shop sucks, wait till you actually visit the LE CLOS at Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport! You'll be awestrucked by the labels they carry and maybe the prices as well. They are selling many of the world's most sought after wines and some spirits - DUTY FREE.
The newly opened outlet boasts some of the world’s rarest and most sought labels, such as Château Petrus 1947 ($12,500/bottle), Château Cheval Blanc 1961 in magnum ($15,750) and Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2005 ($27,778/bottle). One of the quirkier items for sale is a $125K Dom Perignon guitar case. The branch also stocks a number of New World wines, including vintages from Napa icons Opus One, Harlan Estate and Screaming Eagle. Besides that, they do carry a variety of Japanese whisky and you can find some of the cognac costing as much as RM50,000 there.
The shop is also staffed with advisors with expertise to provide information and advice on your purchase. And their website is also fully equipped with their product list and prices. You can even preorder/choose your wines and spirits in advance before you depart from the airport.
So doesn't this add a little more fun to wine shopping at the airport for wine connoisseurs?!!
