Apologies if this has been discussed before/elsewhere. [Just discovered it has been, but I’ve started so I’ll contine https://community.thewinesociety.com/t/how-do-you-define-fine-wine/1747
What do we think TWS means by “fine wine”? I was told once it was wine that has a secondary market, i.e. something that can be traded.
[ I think buying wine as an investment is anathema. Wine is for personal enjoyment, but I digress.]
I guess I always considered fine wine to be something special, worthy of aging and - if I’m honest - from the Old World in general and France in particular.
So when I look at the new “Fine Wine Ideas for 2000” brochure from TWS I do scratch my head a bit at some of the suggestions.
