Red Obsession (w/ How to Taste Vino Like a Sommelier)
For centuries, Bordeaux has commanded a mythical status in the world of fine wine as a leitmotif of wealth, power and influence.

Traditional customers in US, Europe and the UK are falling away as China pushes prices to stratospheric levels. The demand is unprecedented but the product is finite, and this new client wants it all.
