sickening
22 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

as a kid who grew in France and spent my summer working in vignobles in burgundy. This movie made me sick. A bunch of foreign billionnares wannabes who treat wine like stocks and commodities, pretentious vocabulary and disgusting arrogance. money really does ruin everything. people respect the Chinese guy on the video because with his 1 million a month allowance he buy them expensive bottles period. I can't stop thinking about the guy who trained me in Burgundy and the way he talked about wine, the earth, nature, the sky.... like none of the guys will never experience. he hurt me seeing my patrimoine being ripped off. I'm tired to see our vignobles being bought by Chinese oligarches who transplant their materialism in everything they touch,
