Somewhere where there are a couple of Canadians with very deep pockets and a love of old vintage wine.

A bottle of Jura wine dating back to 1774 has sold at auction in France for a record $121,000. Two other bottles were snapped up for $114,000 and $110,000 respectively.

The bottles are counted among the oldest wines in the world.

The buyers were identified only as two Canadians and a third as someone who used to buy for Americans and who has links to France

And what does $121,000 buy you?

In 1994, a tasting panel of 24 wine professionals rated the wine a 9.4 out of 10, offerings notes such as “walnuts, spices, curry, cinnamon, vanilla and dried fruits.”

It would pair nicely with sharp aged cheddar
