Red Obsession

Synopsis: For centuries, Bordeaux has assumed a mythical status in the world of fine wine as a leitmotif of wealth, power and influence, but its prosperity has always been linked to the capricious nature of markets and the shifting fortunes of global economies. Now change is coming to Bordeaux, with traditional customers like the US and the UK falling away, as China's new rich push prices to stratospheric levels. The demand is unprecedented, but the product is finite and this new client wants it all. Will the China market be the bubble that never bursts or the biggest threat yet to Bordeaux's centuries old reputation?

to pick the best plots

of land in the world -

those little plots where the

drainage is done naturally,

where nothing grows but the vines

with the big pebbles to

keep the heat at night

and to reflect the sun in the daytime.

It's a combination but

it took them centuries

and we are just

following in their steps.

When you live in a space like this,

the space takes energy out of you.

There's a link that is being built.

Some of my friends say,

"You've been here for 17, 18 years.

"Are you still amazed when

you arrive in this place?

"Are you still enchanted?"

And I say yes,

because, actually, I'm

getting more and more,

because I understand how

special this piece of land is.

There's a vibration.

There's a real vibration here.

In 1855,

Napoleon llI ordered that

the finest wines of Bordeaux

should be classified and

ranked in order of excellence.

Of the thousands of chteaux,

only a handful were rewarded

with 'Grand Cru' status.

While some may argue that

the 1855 classification

has become outdated,

these same chteaux

remain the jewels in

the crown of Bordeaux.

For many, these wines are

considered works of art,

but, unlike a painting,

wine only exists for

that brief instant in time

after the cork gets pulled.

It's a transient moment,

but it can leave an

indelible impression.

I had the privilege

of having a glass of Chteau Margaux

which was made and bottled

four years after the French Revolution.

Maybe Lafayette himself had tried it.

Maybe Jefferson had tried it.

So you're one with them

in a very intimate way.

When you start thinking about that,

you realize that wine

really told a story.

In the same moment of this

pleasure, this gratification,

there was also a tale told

about the history when

that wine was made -
