“My clients’ enquiries: “Which wine is best to numb the pain and transport you most effectively from your woes?” What, for example, might the chief executive of the world’s fourth-largest investment bank pull up from his cellar, dizzy, reeling and nauseous, knowing that the jobs of 24,000 employees, a proud 158-year commercial history, over $600 billion and the reputation of an entire profession were about to go up in smoke?”
I’d recommend a white wine from the south of France. A Picpoul de Pinet around £4 a bottle.
Or better yet, crunch the credit card and buy a serious Champagne. One that asks questions and gives pause to reflect.
