Egon Müller likes to take his time – when greeting visitors, answering their questions, and most importantly, processing and marketing his complex wines.
His latest triumph has been a decade in the making. A wine matured in his private cellar has set a record at auction as the most expensive white wine in the world.
His Scharzhofberger Trockenbeerenauslese is only 12 years, but it fetched an an astounding €12,000 ($13,400), at the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer wine auction held by the German fine wines association VDP. That’s €1,000 for each year of maturation.
