Imagine my surprise when I read that there are FAKE bottles of Chateau Lafite making their way through Chinese Mainland…Mon Dieu, c’est impossible, a fake in China! Wine expert, Frankie Zhao, who has worked in the industry for 10 years is claiming that he thinks maybe 70% of the so-called Chateau Lafite Rothschild sold in China is fake. According to the the real Lafite, China’s quota of Lafite wine from France is no more than 50,000 bottles but one 5-star hotel in Guangdong is claiming they have sold 40,000 alone while Zhejiang Province is said to be consuming 300,000 bottles a year. Even I can do that math baby. A small, dark and sad secret part of me is loving it that some newly penned coal-mining millionaire boss with his tar and tea-stained teeth and taste buds that are permanently numbed from years of too much bai jiu can’t tell the difference between a $7,000 of wine and some gnarly fruit jam water from Shandong Province.
Who is signing off on these expense reports?!!!
And in completely different and yet still fake news….is it me or has Vladimir Putin had a little mini face-lift??? Some fat replacement maybe? His face is definitely fuller and tighter, something I’ve been wanting for myself for some time. Don’t be surprised if I take a badly needed vacation to…Siberia.
Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
