Quite frankly, 2017 is the most complex, the most variable, red wine vintage that I’ve ever tasted.* I believe that this is largely down to the volumes – i.e. the yields – at harvest time.

    Hi Bill,

    I would just like to say that I think your reports are gettig better and better. You are more direkt in your judgments (always a balancing act for journalist, I know (but you are never rude)). And I as a reader can get a better grasp of the style – as important as quality – of the producer much easier now than before. Much appreciated! We don’t always agree about certain producers, but that’s besides the point.

    Another thing that is highly valuble for me, and I guess the majority of your readers, is where you choose to visit now days. I have absolute zero interest in reading about the newest Roumier vintage. I have never seen a bottle, and will likeley never do so, and that’s fine; but many journalist still seems to think it’s their job to talk about these irrelevant wines. You introduce new names all the time these days…keep it up!
