Wine of kings - King of wines

This honorary title (Latin "Vinum Regum - Rex Vinorum") has already been awarded to several wines due to their outstanding, grandiose quality, including Barolo and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (both Italy), a red wine from the current Gevrey-Chambertin appellation (France), Tokay (Hungary) and others. However, such designations, regardless of vintage or producer, should be treated with caution and have no significance in wine law. See also under Auctions, Wine of the Century, Favourite Wines and Most Expensive Wines in the World.
