Do you revert to buying what you like when it comes to wine (and by extension…)? To do anything else is would be to give credence to junk science and indulge in bullshit economics.

The real problem is that price point usually determines what the average person even has an opportunity to sample. Is a glass of a $500 bottle of wine significantly better than a $50 bottle of wine? I may never know. I will say that the few glasses of $50 bottles of wine I've had were noticeably better than most (though not all) of the $15 and below bottles I've had, so while I do believe in the law of diminishing returns as the price rises, in my experience the $20 to $30 range is the minimum for an excellent wine for most varieties.

Most of us value value. And our scrutiny of a product increases with its price. An unscrutinized bottle of plonk might go down better paired with old friends on a wild night than an exclusive bottle scrutinized in the company of stuffy fucks at the members only soiree.

At least I know which one I'd be more likely to choke on.

Not to complicate things but it depends.
It depends on how we define "value." Are we speaking of use value? Commodity value? Aesthetic value?

Commodity value is often bullxit. Value is also the concentrated labor that create something. It may also be the level of enjoyment one gets out of use or consumption.
