Red Obsession - film

I watched Red Obsession last night.

It’s a documentary about Bordeaux top wines and increasing Chinese demand which has seen prices going up 1000%.

Rather rambling, lots of talking heads and none of them identified so I didn’t know who they were or which winery they represented. Were they owners, winemakers, PR, marketing or what?

Only people I recognised were Oz Clarke, Jancis Robinson and Steven Spurrier.

Nice shots of vineyards and chateaux, but would have been useful, again, to identify them otherwise its just a series of grand houses and vineyards.
