The French wine, named Petrus2000 that spent a year in orbit around space station, put up for sale for Rs 75 crore.


Researchers place this bottle along with 12 other bottles in space in November 2019, in hope to learn more about the potential for "extra-terrestrial agriculture".


The wine returned 14 months later, with the taste subtly altered but delicious, according to experts.


The bottled originally priced at USD 10,000, is to go on sale at Christie's auction house - where it believe it could be sold as much as USD 1M to own it.


According to wine experts the space-aged wine had been "matured in a unique environment" of close to zero gravity aboard the ISS. The wine has flavours of black cherry, cigar box and leather.


The wine that has the ability to age superbly, was chosen for this experiment.
