USA still #1, NJ, Hitler can’t get Burgundy 2010 — sipped & spit

SPIT: Burgundy 2010 allocations are harder than ever to get, per above video!

CHUGGED: USA remains the largest wine-consuming country for the second year in a row. China rose to the top five for the first time. [thedrinksbusiness]

SIPPED: Americans rejoice as they will soon be able to purchase NJ wines directly! Or that’s how they spun the bill’s passage to liberalize the state’s shipping laws. [NJToday.com]

SPIT: Chinese “8” no longer lucky for Lafite — 08 vintage has tumbled 45% in a year. [decanter]

SIPPED: Collateralized drink obligations. A little leverage with your wine? A NY lender offers loans with wine as collateral: borro.com

SIPPED: Mmm, maps. Parcel-by-parcel in Montrachet.

SIPPED: I offer some wine picks at Men’s Health. You’ll have to get the ab workout advice from them though…
