A woman passenger spent EUR 29,700 in Aeroports de Paris boutiques


A grand cru wine record sale took place in April in a Pure and Rare boutique in terminal 2E at Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport. A woman passenger spent nearly EUR 30,000 in a few minutes.


Flying to Abidjan (Ivory Coast) , the woman passenger bought markedly:

  • a 1986 Romanee Conti Jeroboam on sale at EUR 25,000
  • a 2004 La Tâche Grand Cru
  • a 2001Montrachet Grand Cru


"The sale took place rather quickly. The woman was talking on the phone. She was looking for a very special bottle of wine, spotted this item and managed to convince her contact after brief discussion", says Serge Chiron from Pure and Rare boutique.
