the london times – a lesson in how not to spell!


I hope Jane MacQuitty will be giving her editor a good kicking 😉

times’ bad spelling

You might as well read the article now – the errant headline remains…

    Ohh… Burgandy! I love that stuff… Sadly, it’s SO hard to find…

    OK,a silly mistake, but not misleading, whereas, if MacQuitty’s opinion of the 2006 vintage is justified, then all the other opinions emitted until now ARE misleading. Apart from snide comments, what are your (and Rick’s) opinions of the 2006 vintage?

    Well George, poking a little fun at the established press aside, my comments are a matter of record here from November last year, published 2 months before burghound issued his thumbs up and whilst a majority of critics were appearing to sit on the fence – they were even doing so post-EP tastings. Now Mr Meadows is positive, it seams many more are too!

    I tasted over 50 wines yesterday – post bottling – everyone else’s published comments are based on barrel tasting, or (in London) sadly, only en-primeur ‘samples’. I see no reason to change anything I wrote. Burghound is currently tasting in the Côtes, so his Côte de Beaune issue will more reflect bottled wines.

    I respect Jane for taking an alternative position in the face of ‘sudden critical love syndrome’ for the vintage post-burghound, but I am driven by the feeling that her assessment of whites is based only on EP tastings – where the wines were frankly ‘all-over-the-place’ according to friends.
    PS “I hope Jane MacQuitty will be giving her editor a good kicking” is hardly snide, and I hope she does…

    Hi Bill, thanks for the reply….and the reassurance that the 2006’s haven’t suddenly gone downhill. I’ll look forward to your report on your on-going tastings. If you have the oportunity and the time, have a look at Domaine (Jean-Claude) Bachelet in Saint Aubin (Gamay Village). (But don’t tell anyone else!)
