Wine Is For Drinking


I'm writing a short article on Jérôme Prévost tonight, and ran across this quote in my notebook that I like very much. Back in March, we were drinking a number of older vintages of Les Béguines together, some of which represented the last bottles remaining in his cellar. He wasn't too hung up about the fact that he didn't have any more left. "Wine is for drinking," he said. "Too many people buy wine and just look at it. It's a fetish." I certainly did my part in attempting to drink as much Les Béguines as I possibly could that evening.

Exactly, my friend, exactly.

Sorta, but it's also good with bottle age.

I try and try – drink and drink – but also buy and buy – so am I guilty in sin?
