Tasting 100

I have been meaning for a while to blog about a post on VOX about wine pricing. To paraphrase heavily, Parker determines the en primeur price, but the price at maturity depends on how good the wine really is. Given that Parker isn't a really great judge of how a wine will mature, and weather charts are better than him, there is an arb. The most obvious example I remember is the 86s, which were clearly overpriced in their youth, and now have faded to over-oaked oblivion while the 85s are still going strong.
