Interesting article, I've been reading a lot about French wine recently and have read about that quite a while ago.


BTW, have you noticed that you always type your French accent marks wrong? An accent aigu is different from an accent grave and acutally makes it a different word and a different pronunciation. I mean, as long as you are going to the trouble of typing them, I thought you might want to know. You do it consistently with the name Hermes, also, only on that one you make it an accent aigu when it should be an accent grave.

I shudder to think that French rosés and Sutter Homes wines would be considered equal. Hopefully traditional methods will still have a place in this market.

so do I. I fear the bastardized rosés will take over and we'll see less of our favorites.

From the NYT this morning "The European Union had proposed relaxing these rules, which would have allowed producers everywhere in Europe to blend red and white to make rosé. But after heavy lobbying from rosé producers, who feared that their more painstaking methods would give way to cheap blends of poor wines, the union on June 8 withdrew the proposal."
