It is possible that this whole aging under the water business might be more than simple marketing efforts after all, case in point might be the collaborative efforts of Chateau Champs des Soeurs and Abbaye Sainte Eugenie in France's Languedoc region. Some 15 months ago these two producers submerged some 400 bottles of wine with the intention of aging them under the sea for 8 months, which means that they should be filtering into the marketplace somewhere right about now. I'd love to get my hands on a bottle or two, price permitting of course. This is of course one of the world's great sources for value wines so even with the under water premium I would expect this wine might be an affordable option for those wishing to see for themselves what this business is all about. Let me know if you see any for sale and I'll do the same!
Wine Under Water
Is this a fad or is there science behind ageing wine under water?
