A Chinese air passenger spent more than EUR46,000 (US$64,000) on French grands crus wines in a duty free shop at Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport, the airport authority has said.

Among the wines purchased were two Burgundys - a La Tâche 1991 and a Romanée Conti 2002- as well as several Bordeauxs, including a Lafite Rothschild 1947, a Pétrus 1986, a Certan 1982, a Château Margaux 1982 and a Château Latour 1976.

The spending spree represents a record sum for a single purchase of wines at the airport, beating the previous total of EUR23,000.
