For me, around 90 bucks.
Why? Because the wine is from a new area not familiar to you?
That's part of my price reasoning, of course!
I'd add that it's from a new area not familiar to just about everybody here.
No track record, at a price point that doesn't lend itself to me being made curious enough to want to jump in.
The back story in uncompelling. Do I look to the Chinese government as arbiters of fine plantings?
Someone mentioned this: "It can take any amount of oxygen you can throw at it and remain unchanged. A half-drunk bottle tasted exactly the same 48 hours after opening as it had the first minute. I’ve never encountered such immutability in a table wine before."
Add this: "Using luxury skills in combination with innovative creativity, risk-taking, all in a very bespoke way to create something new and unique.”
So, what value do I put on "luxury skills?"
I went with 90 bucks, not an inconsiderable amount for a new and unheralded wine.
Did my price point offend? I did not mean to. I am curious what price would make my fellow Berserkers take the leap.
Edited to add: Jeff! How much did you pay for it?
