The future looks rosé for fine wine

Despite the recession, several poor vintages and counterfeit labels at the top end of the market, Anthony Rose says there is light at the end of the barrel for investors

Anthony Rose: "Magnums bring a bit of majesty"

Size isn't everything, but having a magnum on the dinner table undoubtedly brings a bit of majesty. The wine in a 1.5cl bottle generally keeps better, so if you were thinking of laying the wine down, it is well-served by this bottle.

Anthony Rose: "For wine to be an icon, it must achieve the rare feat of consistency and value"

On the face of it, an 'everyday icon' wine is a paradox. How can a wine be iconic, or superlative, if it's an everyday drink? There are many wines that aspire to that sort of status, but few succeed. Those that do, among them Château Lafite, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and Petrus, have crossed the affordable rubicon into la-la-land of pricing.

Anthony Rose: "Independent wine merchants are often leagues ahead of the supermarkets"

Recognising that most wine drinkers buy their wines in supermarkets, this column doesn't indulge in gratuitous supermarket-bashing.
