Looks nice! I've heard about the wine much, but I haven't tasted it yet :(

Never tried it either.
I have tasted a few things though, but not much.
I have tasted Riesling (white wine from Alsace),
and a few Champagne (from Champagne ;-) ).
I am afraid that's all I can brag about my drinking experience.
I am more sober than a monk! LOL

Alcohol has both advantages and drawbacks, though much depends on its quality and drunk amounts.
Results of abusing ethanol (and methanol) have been known since the Ancient times, the issue of quality was presented to wider public during Prohibition in the United States, where people died after drinking low-quality booze nicknamed "Bathtub Jake". Cheaper wine brands often contain chemical compounds with sulfur named sulfites
, which may be toxic when consumed in large quantities.
On another hand, cardiologists praise red wine for boosting heart ratio and reinforcing blood flow in organism. Of course, the wine must be drunk in reasonable quantities. ;)

That is what Gérard Depardieu will tell you:
" - I drink Bordeaux, It is good for health, and It is my doctor's prescription!
- I drink and I love it, I take my prescription steadily, morning, noon, and evening.
- Maybe I drink more than three glasses a day,
but after half a dozen glasses of this delicious (and healthy) beverage I just can't remember! "

No wonder Depardyeyev ( that's how do we call him in Poland xD ) drinks wine in such amounts - with his BMI*, one glass doesn't affect him and Gerry has need to feel, what he drinks. ;)
*BMI = Body Mass Index

Furthermore he has a very long habit of drinking.
So, yes indeed, It takes more than just a few glasses to get drunk in his case.
But you know how he is: he knows no limits!
BTW, is there a wordplay on "Depardyeyev" ? :-)

His addiction and political sentiments are the main reasons Putin and his thugs welcomed Gerard so warmly in Moscow - since he drinks wine in large quantities, switching to stronger alcohol won't be difficult for him.
The nickname comes from combination of words "Depardieu" (his family name) and suffix "-ev" (example ending of Russian name), developed into "Depardyeyev", because "Depardyev" doesn't sound correct from grammar side. Gerry did admit in one of interviews, that he admires Stalin and NKVD for their red imperialism; having gained Russian citizenship made the nick fully justified. ;)
