Luxury or Fine Wine
Are Château Margaux, Sassicaia or La Romanée Conti luxury brands just like Hermès or Cartier? Europeans are reluctant to talk about luxury wines. They much prefer the term "fine wine". How can we differentiate luxury wine, fine wine, ultra premium wine? How does it affect the market? Are their customers different? With increasing prices and wines being marketed in the same ways as other luxury goods, these questions have been at the heart of many discussions.
