icymi – week 38 – mainly expensive & forged this week


Wine Searcher have been off my article radar for a while now – rarely offering something to pique my reading lust, but there are two in two days this week:

  • Burgundy: Breeding Ground for Unicorn Wines
    Worth reading, but always with the ‘Yes, but…’ in the back of my mind. For all the blah, blah about pricing – people should note that for the top three wines (price-wise) in Don’s list – combined – there are probably less than 600 cases in the whole world each year – with all my connections, I might be able to assemble one or two of them per year – bottles, not cases! For 99.99999% of people who may read this article, their name is not on the list – including, usually, me… In the real world, when a bourgogne starts at €20 and a villages at €40 – now that’s the real problem to think and talk about…
  • Running the Numbers on Rudy’s Fake Wines
    Stuart is well-placed to offer thoughts on this, having got caught up in the world of the White Club – seemingly well-extracted from that, he has some thoughtful analysis…

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
