From the page: “On December 5, 1985, publishing tycoon Malcolm Forbes purchased a bottle of 1787 Chateau Lafite Bordeaux (said to have belonged to Thomas Jefferson) for a record-breaking $156,000. The extravagance of the purchase sent shock waves through the wine world – but none that would match the collective gasp when, years later, the vintage was called out as a forgery. In The Billionaire’s Vinegar, Benjamin Wallace re-examines the scandal’s mystique, masterfully unraveling a fast-paced tale of power, deception, and oenophilic excess.”
