The record has been set for the most expensive bottle of white wine.

The Guinness Book of World Records' website shows the buyer with the bottle of white wine he purchased for $121,000.

The buyer is the former head of wine services at La Tour d'Argent, the Paris restaurant that many consider the best in the world.

The 200-year-old bottle of the prestigious dessert wine Château d'Yquem was bottled in 1811.

The record price for a single bottle of red wine is $144,000.
