If I'd won the £161 million, I probably would just for the hell of it.
That said, it probably tastes like cat's p*ss
I've always found that a strange saying even though I do use it myself. Who the hell has tried Cat's P*ss and is it really bad or have we been lied to all these years and it is in fact "like nectar from the Gods"
The BBC report is wrong. The most expensive white wine was a 1787 Ch d'Yquem engraved with what was held to be the name of Thomas Jefferson, US President and wine collector when ambassador to Paris in the 18th Century, which sold at auction for £107,000.
However, the headline is a bit misleading.
Snoop - I wouldn't represent myself as an authority, let alone on generally available reds, as I tend to lay down wines for years and these tend not to be ones that would automatically appeal to the broadest range of tastes. However, I tried a superb Cairanne from the Southern Rhone recently, and I heartily enjoyed it.
This is one available from the Wine Society (you have to join but their service is frankly excellent, their selection of wines just way better than a supermarket) Cairanne - a super, balanced but very rich, lusty Southern French red. (my only connection with the Wine Society is that I am a member, and a happy one too. You can visit them in Stevenage).
Enjoy your trip - where are you going?
