I was pleased to be interviewed the award-winning journalist Christiane Amanpour earlier this week for her “Around the World with Christiane Amanpour” report on ABC.com. The original topic was set to be last week’s French wine auction, where odd lots and “too-expensive-to-serve” bottles from the Elysee Palace cellars were sold off to pay for more modestly priced wines to serve at state events (with a bit left over to pay down the French national debt).
The auction was a success (buyers snapped up wines that became famous by the publicity surrounding the auction), but Ms. Amanpour, perhaps sensing that this had already become old news, shifted the conversation to another wine topic. Click on the image below to view the interview.
Thanks to Mary-Rose, David and of course Christiane Amanpour for their work on this interview.
