Via Vinography I read this great article in Slate about fraud in the rare wine collecting business.
Frankly I'm not surprised. I'm not a fan of wine collecting anyway. All this business about 1947 Chateau Latour or 1981 Cheval Blanc is really about vanity, not great wine. I don't judge what people do with their money, but it just contributes to the stereotype of wine snobbery that keeps so many people from enjoying wine.
