Alice: You are a professional journalist. You have a book out. The fact that this is a blog for you, something I have well researched, does not give you the liberty to do sloppy research and spread rumors rather than facts. You have been doing it too long. Too many people use the lack of editorial supervision on the web to write whatever comes to mind. You know better. Joe

Alice: You didn't realize Porcheret worked for Bize-Leroy because you did no research for this article. The question of acidification and chaptalization was resolved 14 years ago. A journalist should make an effort, even a small one. Joe

This is no great scoop. The Porcheret incident was well documented. Porcheret was not only the winemaker for the Hospices but also for Bize-Leroy, that is not a minor figure in Burgundy. Anyhow, so what? Would his wines have been any better with or without the interventions he used? Is legislative restrain a way to force making good wine? The only think that is important about the AOC regulations, to me, is that it tells me where the wine actually comes from. All the rest is accessory information and the market will and should decide what is good and what is worth buying. Bloggers and journalists making sensationalist findings, 14 years after the fact, are really serving little purpose other that stirring the pot for no reason.

Alice: It was a great tribute. As a journalist, it is not too difficult to figure out who was singing and to give him credit.
