50,000 Euros Duty Free Paris

December 13, 2011 by staff 

50,000 Euros Duty Free Paris, A traveller has made a record purchase at Paris’s Charles de Gaulle airport when he spent nearly 50,000 euros (£42,000; $66,000) on six bottles of exclusive wine, the airport says.

The duty-free purchase was made by a shopper “from the far east” on Friday.

It consisted of a bottle of Romanee Conti 1995, a Chateau Margaux 2003, two bottles of Chateau Lafitte 1982 and two bottles of Petrus 1980.

The airport noted high-quality wines “sold better at the end of the year”.

Travellers “buy each year in the shops of the two Parisian airports more than a million bottles of wine and nearly 400,000 bottles of champagne”, Paris airport operator ADP said in a statement.

The previous record sale was made last year in April when a woman traveller, bound for Abidjan in Ivory Coast, spent nearly 30,000 euros on three bottles of wine, ADP told the BBC.
