I guess it is no secret that Americans suck at math, or just about anything difficult.
No wonder we're headed down the tubes.
Sort of like more bottles of 1947 Lafleur sold in the last 5 years than were ever produced.
And people jump in to say how it is possible.
A little math, if DRC produced 6000 btls of 1934 RC, then there had to be an average of less than 82 bottles consumed in the entire world per year since release for there to be a single bottle left. No one really does the math because they arbitrage the ignorance. Pretty much how big money is made in the US over the last 25 years, I guess.
Here is a Wine Spectator piece. Also check out eBob if you want. Be warned though, there is a lot of crazy going on.
