Narrated by Oscar-winner Russell Crowe, this stunningly shot and wildly entertaining documentary chronicles the history and changing nature of the French wine industry. For centuries Bordeaux has commanded a mythical status in the world of fine wines as a symbol of wealth, power and influence.
Prices for its prestigious red wines have been breaking records with the emergence of an ever-growing Chinese market that is changing the nature of wine in the 21st century.Featuring interviews with collectors, connoisseurs, and winemakers, the film presents an eye-opening exploration of the complexities and unpredictability of the global market and the economic effects and influence of the voracious wine-obsessed collectors of China.
For better or worse, Bordeaux is hitching itself to this new, infinitely wealthy client.
