Okay, I probably got that album title wrong!
Actually, I’m not really, and obviously tenuously, combining those two thoughts – except that I was too lazy to make two separate posts 😉
The pic above was snapped on my phone yesterday – yet another gorgeous day in the Côtes – but I’ll have to cut that theme/meme short as it’s becoming monotonous! So quickly moving on…
This article (the dark side) also has only a tenuous link with wine as I appreciate it. Yes, I know they are bottles, but the collections have been ‘assembled’ as ‘collections’ not really cellars – the could just as easily be stamps or pictures it seems – hence they are quickly consigned to sale because they have become more valuable and can turn a nice profit. If the ‘collectors’ were suddenly afflicted by a medical condition or a ginormous tax bill, then I could have a little sympathy – but this is clearly not the case. I’m sorry if I can’t see the connection to wine and wine enthusiasts. Actually the routine nature of these sales, even ignoring the possibility of falsifications, seems actually more boring than my pictures of the sun in Beaune!
