Many duty-free shops in international airports sell expensive wine and spirits but a new shop at Dubai International Airport’s Terminal 3 is one of the most extravagant yet. The shop, Le Clos, sells many of the world’s most sought-after wines including not just recent vintages but some legendary bottles like the Chateau Petrus 1947, ChÃ¢teau Cheval Blanc 1961 and Domaine de la RomanÃ©e-Conti 2005. Their website shows that their range of vintages starts in 1945.
The shop is staffed with wine advisors with expertise on specific regions and varietals and whisky experts are also on staff for help with selecting the best single malts. There are several options for buying. You can pre-order through the online store and collect your bottles in the store before you fly out of Dubai. Or if you are making a return journey back into Dubai you can choose your wines ahead of time and pick them up after your flight.
