What are the top 10 wines in the world? If you ask yourself the question know that ChatGPT has the answer. Our colleagues from Figaro I had fun testing OpenAI’s AI to see what it would say about it.
From the outset he underlines that the perception of wine can be subjective because opinions on this drink vary from person to person. But he specifies that objective knowledge exists on this drink: production techniques, production regions, vines, harvest years, food pairings …
5 French wines in the ranking

When ChatGPT designs a new cuvée
ChatGPT’s winemaking exploits don’t stop there. Last June we told you about the initiative of the Aubert & Mathieu company based in Carcassonne. The two partners decided to innovate by asking AI to design a new cuvée.
The latter complied and composed a limited edition of 600 bottles sold at the price of 30 euros. “This exceptional wine is the fruit of the collaboration between Aubert & Mathieu, producers of quality wine in Languedoc, and ChatGPT, one of the most advanced linguistic models in the world”states the company on its website.
The two partners also specified that they had been able to evaluate the limits of artificial intelligence for such an exercise. This is the case with spelling errors in press releases or his inability to suggest visual ideas for the label. Good news for the many people working in wine marketing in France who won’t be replaced by a machine anytime soon.
