now all the world’s interested in p.ox…


Well maybe not all the world, but after Decanter’s recent piece, Jay McInerny is at it in the Wall Street Journal too.

Nothing new of-course, just that the story is now trickling out into a more mainstream audience – in a way it’s surprising it’s taken so long…

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    No referencing to the ‘power’ of in this article Bill, unlike the Decanter one 😉

    First mention I’ve seen of a DRC Montrachet suffering. The denial bit sounds familiar though!

      I’ve heard a few whispers about that particular wine Tom – which is such a shame – there should be a thrill involved with Montrachet, and that wine delivered it in spades; it remains the best young example of my (limited) experience….

    The rest of Burgundy gets off light — he attributes the problem only to Côte de Beaune wines.

    Anecdotally, it would appear that the market is changing. I’m seeing current vintages of certain wines on the shelves and getting e-mail offers for others that had been much more difficult to obtain in the recent past.

      Agreed Claude; a few merchants have told me that this is the case.
