Burgundy Wine


Filmed in a year when high finance caught a fever, ‘The Firm’ unwittingly becomes a chronicle of the changing world order and Berrys’ Chairman Simon Berry unveils the secrets of a successful family-owned and run business.

From the unassuming winemaker David Clarke of the small village of Morey-Saint-Denis, in Burgundy, to the wily General Manager of Chateau Cos d’Estournel, Jean-Guillaume Prats, — one of Bordeaux’s premium chateaux, the programme explores the eccentric and compelling world of wine.

    smart person wont overpay, unless he is vain and has a lot of money or the
    wine REALY tastes good. The rules of the game, let them play 🙂 it is fun
    to watch

    I hate this speculation with wine because compromises the quality and and
    inflates the prices. So noone can drink it. Wine is not a common commodity,
    a luxury good for rich people who like to display. Wine making is a form of
    art.

    The price just doesn’t mean someone should love the wine. Even if it
    reflects the quality, history, producers brand, etc. It does not mean a
    perfect much for every wine lover. Sad to admit, but showing off with the
    prices happens … Even if the wine is just unacceptable for someone. I
    agree with tatti salles: consume wine for pleasure. And understand your own
    preferences deeply [Wine TABS Matrix] before you spend money ..

    In bylous , we are pleased to recommend a great documentary about the wine
    and the wine industry. It’s produced by the BBC and has 3 chapters: the
    firm, the faith and the future.
    Here’s the chapter number one: the firm. We hope you like it.

    I own 3 $1500/bottles of champagne, but I have never tasted them. I have
    tasted $500/bottles of wine, cognac, scotch, and bourbon, but nothing
    higher grade than that. and I own a few bottles of that stuff too. my
    pedigree isn’t much higher than that of a distributor.

    how does this family stay in business? real simple. either they are a
    Rothschild, or they are beholden to one. the Diageo/inbev branch of the
    Bilderberg crime cartel instituted state bureaucracies to personally see to
    it that private retailers are obliterated through police violence and
    marshal law.

    I also brew my own wines, and I can certify that they do actually get
    better and develop with age. it depends on the grape used, the brewing
    process used, and the bottling process used.

    better cause it was old, mental suggestion some kind

    nope. wine is like a living thing in that sense … well, the reds are
    anyway. anything can effect the way it tastes, from the amount you let it
    breathe, to the weather, and even the kind of glass you use. a fantastic
    book is “wine for dummies”. its the most thorough book on the subject, and
    you’ll certainly gain a new depth of appreciation. but its almost cruel if
    you don’t have access to real wine :- real wine is not easy to make, so it
    will cost you. this is not a poor man’s pleasure.

    I mean, when You see a price tag on the thing 🙂 or dust, i am sure it can
    make u focus more on the taste and appreciate it… Well I am no expert
    though. I know that red wine makes me acidic in my throat, but white wine
    is nicer testier and more gentle for my stomach.

    absolutely. please make no mistake. common wines are everything from
    blended, seeded, diluted, reconstituted, and even synthesized! … there
    are a whole host of nasty nasty tricks used to fool the customer. although
    labeling laws are somewhat strict, there are too many ways around them for
    the creative thinker. you have to be knowledgeable, and only work with
    reputable people you can trust (- these people are exceedingly rare). real
    wine is an experience, not just a drink.

    at minute 22 or so, these wine merchants are they the ones that buy wine
    for other parts of the world? if so, i saw among them an asian looking
    lady. probably ethnic chinese. hopefully it’s for people from hong kong and
    not mainland china. apparently the emerging wealthy and new middle class in
    china dont actually like wine and they mix it with COCA COLA…..lol…..in
    other words, what’s the point for them to buy expensive wine if at the end
    you’ll be mixing it with coke???

    I can buy a really fabulous bottle of wine for thirty Canadian dollars.
    That would be a lot less in many other countries. Am I supposed to believe
    that any wine is worth a thousand pounds per bottle? I guess it’s all
    relative to how much money you have. It’s pocket change to some people.
    Still, I find it sad that obviously wonderful wine is being bought and
    traded by people who buy it as a perceived investment, rather than by
    people who just really love wine.

    +dekubaner are you shitting me? China has over a billion people and you
    think there is a unified “they”. Yes, I have heard of some people mixing
    with Coke, but the Chinese are not the Borg, they are individuals. You, on
    the other hand, sound like a bigot!
