PARIS—A shopper has broken the record for duty-free purchases at Paris’s Charles de Gaulle airport by splurging nearly 50,000 euros ($66,000) on six bottles of exclusive wine, the airport said on Monday.

The shopper, who was identified only as “an Asian”, bought a bottle of Romanee Conti 1995, a Chateau Margaux 2003, two bottles of Chateau Lafitte 1982 and two bottles of Petrus 1980, worth a total of 49,905 euros, Paris airports operator Aeroports de Paris said in a statement.

The airport did not say when the purchases had been made, but noted that high-quality wines “sell better at the end of the year”.
