Wear your wine glass — on your ring finger

ring_wine_glassSavor the wine bling of the day: a tiny cognac snifter that attaches to ring. In fact, there are other size glasses–click the image for the full lineup that is putting the “wear” in glassware.

I hope that whoever wears it doesn’t like to gesticulate.

危机:汉普顿靠近罗斯·干旱!

汉普顿的夏季居民可能无法通过ROS©彩色眼镜遇到世界。

转移,2012年伟大的中西部干旱!危机逃离汉普顿是罗斯·©的荒谬。这纽约邮政报告“汉普顿的Tipplers将很难找到一个最喜欢的ROSéOut East劳动节。”一家商店只有六瓶价格过高的域OTT左手!如果Cristal Stocks类似地危机怎么办?

这个周末应该喝点什么?用一些Muscadet瘦身?像A一样喝酒Montauk hipster有一个小assyrtiko?无论你建议什么,只需将它们远离2010年的Chablis,因为没有那么多......

突破:来自Armand De Brignac的Jay-Z利润!

In an extensive waste of the journalism world’s precious resources, Zack O’Malley Greenburg has uncovered what we have known since 2006: Armand de Brignac is mediocre Champagne at best and Jay-Z profits from it!

Greenburg has a chapter of his forthcoming book on Jay-Z published in The Atlantic (although, mysteriously, it has been removed from their site and is available这里). As we discussed back in 2006 (“Jay-Z在戏剧中放了一只王牌“),在WSJ和Businessweek的故事中绘制”ACE“是一个荒谬的价格,无处不在,依靠Jay-Z的明星力量来销售它。如果他有经济股份,那么什么?购买它的人是过量的,以饮用形象而不是优质的葡萄酒,这是第一次发生的。

Here’s how Lyle Fass summed it up in Greenburg’s piece: “Everybody should take a lesson who wants to sell wine that sucks. Because it is probably the most brilliant marketing in the history of wine.”

香槟,法国狂欢,芝加哥 - 啜饮和吐

2413315515_bb2fc19014_mSPIT: Bling champagne
An unnamed source cites declines of 50-85% in champagne sales with pricey stuff hit hardest. The story by Alice Feiring in this weekend’sWSJ。杂志also suggest price wars may be imminent. (Lack of) Money quote comes from Roberta Morrell, a NYC retailer: “The trouble with dropping prices is how will they raise them?”

吐痰:香槟报告
一篇文章jancisrobinson.com.criticizes recent coverage of Champagne’s 2009 harvest. Main quibble: “After the harvest there will not be masses of grapes left to rot on the vine.”

啜饮:芝加哥的变化
山姆的葡萄酒和烈酒上个月关闭了他们的南循环位置,现在将关闭他们的高地公园商店。Meanwhile, Illinois now has anincreased tax on wine, rising $0.13 per bottle to $0.28. As a result, distributor Rocky Wirtz has起诉国家。Five other states recently raised taxes on wine.

Douchebauchery chronicles

Armanddebrignacclub.是的,即使经济下降,有些人并没有出去!

对于展览A,我们转向匿名俱乐部的官员,根据博客客人的客人, spent $20k on a methuselah (six liters) of Armand de Brignac. Yes,Ace of Spades,那么2006年!但显然仍然强烈。纽约莫尔Grub Streetterms this bling spend an example of “douchebauchery.”

对于展览B,我们转向查尔斯德戴戴戴·戴尔机场,在那里匿名圣诞节前夕购物者(礼物绝望?)在葡萄酒支出狂欢期间下降了46,423欧元(65,013美元)!彭博details what he brought the the register: “a Cote du Rhone [sic] La Tache from 1991 and several bottles from the Bordeaux region, including a Lafite Rochschild bottled [sic] in 1947 and a Chateau Latour from 1976.” Paper or plastic? Seriously, this dude needed to think of structuring his gift so the recipient could spend the $65kat auction, where all the deals are!

过去的圣诞节的衬衫:Beaute du Siecle Coganc

beaute_du_siecleWith little new wine bling rolling out for this holiday season, I had a brief encounter with the bling of Christmas past. No, it wasn’t the$ 10k白金dompé©rignon jerobaum我们去年(6)举办了你(6)。

相反,几天前我偶然发现了一个实际的蜂鸣般的Beautédusiçclecognac(find this cognac).Introduced last year在其展示案例中,由十件艺术家设计,使用镜子和模塑铝(!),Cognac认为,当一个瓶子是购买时,通过LVMH的一名董事中的一个驾驶员在豪华轿车中递送。I twisted the Baccarat crystal bottle around in its holder (I didn’t lift it because I thought it might trip a sensor and since I’m not Indiana Jones, I didn’t have a 750g bag of sand to put in its place). There’s no label, save for the government warning! Ah, the surgeon general’s reach escapes no one.

Perhaps there is an aluminum lining for those interested in purchasing: introduced at €150,000 last year, the price has gone down based on汇率独自的!

令人难以置信的萎缩或消失的假期派对!

这sound of corks popping may be replaced by the sound of pins dropping: the next victim of the financial crisis appears to be the lavish holiday party. Morgan Stanley hasnixed theirs。News Corporation sent theirs to the切割房间while ABC News is planning something more modest. Another financial services firm retains the Christmas spirit but cut the Taittinger and is adding something else (a bull market for prosecco and cava?), to trim the per person tab at their party according to时代。(no-)金钱报价:“没有人命令鱼子酱作为第一课程。”

What’s your company doing this year to cut back, if anything? All the Dr. Vino interns were disappointed that this year’s magnum party has been downsized to a 375ml party. But hopefully we will all have something to cheer after the election!

谁现在威胁着我们?Bling Beer!

Blingbeer.jpg.

Carlsberg, the Danish brewer, has announced the release of a $400 beer called “Vintage No. 1.” According to彭博, the beer, which costs 357 times more than the regular Carlsberg lager, “has been developed to challenge luxury wines in the gourmet restaurant market and capitalize on rising individual wealth.”

但他们不知道这一点布陵is only allowed in wine country! (OK, maybe科涅克白兰地too.) How dare them try to pry our白金覆盖的jerobaums在我们的葡萄酒中染成手指!Bling Beer,你注意到了!
