Wine & Wine... & Politique



Wine & Wine….& Politique

In classical Greek culture, wine was the staple around which philosophy, art, poetry, religion, music and political life revolved.


Is Opus One a Great Wine?


I hold this Interrogation and this feeling thought comes from my private space where only I enter. It is my cellar where my dreams spread or fly with the aroma of a good party and where natural elegance is never run over. Where the snobbish economic factor that is raised on the masts of the Embassy of Ignorance, will never be invited even for an analysis of the equation costs versus benefits. Neither will the guardian of my cellar let this entity enter.

A wise and well-known winemaker told me that wines are sensitive to alien aromas. Foreign to their nature and can spoil a creation where Mother Nature can never repeat the same conditions that led to create that unique work of art. The beauty of this wine, its genuine quality cannot be manufactured in a laboratory, much less with a computer or manipulative algorithm.

Mama Mercedes, my Mrs. Mama, felt an indescribable pleasure for this Opus One. The Opus One 1979-1980-1981 and 1984 were her favorites.And before leaving this World, She felt that 2016 would be one of the Greats.

Mercedes was not wrong about the Opus One Year 2016, judging by the price per bottle today in this 2022.

Lovers of Wine today value, on the retail market more than a Thousand Dollars per Bottle of Opus One of the year 2016. This value does not make me sleepy and not because I am a billionaire. I already state my case over this point above, “Collectors of materialistic values make me sad and bore my existence”.

“I am Capitalist”. And I fit myself into a definition I heard very recently: “The heart of American capitalism is a simple idea: open and fair competition”, by Joe Biden.

Biden declares himself a firm “proud capitalist” but said that he wants to “ensure our economy isn’t about people working for capitalism, it’s about capitalism working for people”.

Forty years ago we chose the wrong path, in my view, a date that would correspond with the beginning of Ronald Reagan's presidency. It is interesting to observe that in those same days of Ronald Reagan as a President of the USA, it was the end of the Berlin Wall as a symbol of a defeat of the communist system.

Unfortunately, as a result of the end of an era, the "Pax Americain" was unleashedWe are now 40 years into the experiment of letting giant corporations acquire more and more power, Biden said, and charged that the result has been slower economic growth and a declining standard of living. 

I believe the experiment has failed, and here my thoughts join with permission, on the words of Mr. President Biden.

I want to move to another angle of this story, which will never be alien to what I have been writing paragraphs above. I want to move to another angle of this story, which will never be alien to what I have been writing paragraphs above. Where I cross the bridge where the good word Politics meets the world of Good Wine.

In classical Greek culture, wine was the staple around which philosophy, art, poetry, religion, music and political life revolved. Wise men drink wine to expand their minds and praise the gods. Wine was a staple of the Spartan diet, but they rarely drank to excess and often cautioned their children against drunkenness. In some cases, they would even force Helot slaves, between free men and slaves, to get wildly inebriated as a way of showing young Spartans the negative effects of alcohol.

In Conclusion, Homo Sapiens, Female or Male, both are natural politicians from the moment the first breaths of air enter into their lungs. And although we strive to find what will never be found, day and second of the first breath of the existence of the universes, I would not put a Calendar on Wine either, unless it was to find a specific turn around the Sun that was exceptional and the one that will have no similar in all eternity.

My Cut.

Wine is one of the most valuable Live Organic Beverages in all the Universes. Obviously and without it being a sin alcohol is in its chemical structure as is the latter in countless elements in nature. 

Whoever eats a beef steer beyond the capacity of each human organism, this will not have a good outcome. With wine the same rule applies. The art of good drinking or eating, passes much more for the quality of origins, sizes and portions, than for the quantity. 

Always “The YOUNG NEW" generations of human beings fall into the same trap, where quantity without judging quality along with space, time and speed, is irrelevant.

Both adjectives, quantity and quality, are essential within the coexistence of existence itself, with the infinite and eternal evolution, if you allow me the redundancy. The balanced association of both is a sine-kua-non condition.

 Good Wine has essential partners!. With the sole exception of one, The Human Being.

Salut!!
