Dealing with the Fear of Fake Wines

Counterfeiting is a problem for trophies, but we can relax and enjoy most wines

Posted: November 25, 2009  By James Suckling

A wine merchant told me a story recently about a customer who wanted to return two cases of 1982 Bordeaux, even though the bottles and labels were in perfect condition. Apparently his customer had served the wine at a dinner with friends and everyone around the table was suspicious of the bottles because the labels and capsules were perfect. They looked new. Moreover, the wine was incredibly fresh and beautiful, like it was 10 years younger.

What his customer didn't know was that the two cases came directly from the cellars of the château.
