Coming to the end of the 4th year of Burgundy Report, the format has essentially remained static since issue 1; there’s been the odd design tweak here and there but otherwise it’s the same. I’m constantly aware that this format could become rather stale; i.e. the (potentially mad) ramblings of one individual. To hopefully counter (or at least delay) that situation I’ve decided that a little democracy is called for.
From the last report of 2006 (in a little over a month) the considerable knowledge of the readership can be deployed – should they wish. Just like this update log, at the bottom of every, new content page will be your chance to comment, offer alternative views, or correct the patently false! Or even just comment on some-one else’s comment! There’s a depth of knowledge in the readership that no individual could replicate; winemakers, relatives of winemakers, sellers of wine and don’t let us forget – ‘enthusiasts’. Let’s see if some of that knowledge can be brought out with this change.
Typically just as I find what I believe to be the best technical solution I see something ‘even better’ on the horizon – but why wait(?), first let us see if it brings some value.
