A Good Bottle, but not for Everyone

If we must prepare for scarcity (and high prices) we may as well do so via the digital content of My Vitibox, at the risk of making you want to drink water (or rob a bank, which is by far preferable to taking to beer-drinking for good). My Vitibox is France’s online wine sales and delivery site par excellence. Once a year, the site offers the opportunity of discovering the most famous and most expensive wines (not to be confused with “the most expensive wine in the world”)… which have no chance of coming into contact with the oropharyngeal junction of your mouth in a long and noisy process of tasting… even if your purse allowed you this “indulgence,” it is very likely that the said bottle, priced at more than €500,000 will be thoroughly undrinkable.
