So, following on from yesterday’s news stories, now we know how Etienne de Montille can afford to buy the Château du Puligny-Montrachet 😉 But as far as I know the Château de Puligny-Montrachet actually held 0.0428ha – that only produces a little over 200 bottles per year! – so perhaps Caroline’s decimal point slipped:

So that would make the whole vineyard worth €186.7 million….!

    Gotta get rid of those euros as quickly as possible, Bill, and no point buying something that’s easily replaced, replicated or wears out is there?
