Wine of kings - king of wines

Krone - Wein der Könige - König der Weine This unofficial honorary title (lat. "Vinum Regnum - Rex Vinorum") has already been awarded to several wines due to their outstanding, grandiose quality, such as the Barolo and the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (both Italy), a red wine from the current appellation Gevrey-Chambertin (France), the Tokaj (Hungary) and others.

However, such designations of a general nature, regardless of vintage or producer, should be used with caution and have no serious or wine-legal meaning. On this topic, see also under Auctions, Century Wine, Favourite Wines and Most Expensive Wines of the World.
