Besides the ridiculous price which makes it a luxury/trophy item rather than wine, this raises all kinds of interesting questions about how wine ages, not to mention how one opens the ampoule.

What a farce.

"The winemaker will then prepare the wine using a beautifully crafted sterling silver tastevin."

Big deal. What kind of preparation are they talking about? Is this just the winemaker getting a taste?
