The fine wine market and its players continue to bemoan and whine. The market is moribund and nothing is selling.

I am pleased to offer :
1 x MUSIGNY GRAND CRU 2010 – DOM. GEORGES ROUMIER @ 4950.00 € – BH 97
This is not wine broking, this is not fair trade. This is speculation on an epic and obscene scale; it is larceny with regard to the domaine, and ritual abuse with regard to the client.
