This article really discombobulated me. Not that I am a renown connoisseur of wine but this was strange by any standard:
A Chinese buyer said he shipped a high-priced bottle of wine he bought from the prime minister of France home to China without tasting it first. Huang Lushen paid a premium price of 10,500 euros ($14,390) at auction for the burgundy, which came from the personal cellar of Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault.There are only two possible explanations:
- The (unnamed) writer of this piece has a very refined sense of humor.
- The said writer doesn't have a slightest idea what he is writing about.
Then I shall run very fast.
