    I take this opportunity to tackle a dilemma in my mind, but nonetheless a secure thought.
    I cannot dedicate time to research on BLENDs ! I find them impure and a trick just to please a palate. If this was the rule so why not also GMOs!! I make you “come” to every sip and that is the essence!?!? NO! it is a trick! a chemical intervention not related to one specific subject.
    Let’s try to mix coca cola in it ! maybe you like it! (extreme! I know! only way to understand: bring to the extreme)
    I am for the CRU as the ones to declare winners of the table, refined/classy table or not.
    In that way I can compare them easy and establish the “BoCCATo” and the work of the producer; establish the “palate” taste that will carry me into a clear journey in a man made reality and not a war of fakers.
    Sorry Bordeaux Blends or Italian Blends, I will drink you for benevolence, but, really sorry, you are not the king and queen of WINEs.
    (Do I sound like the Italian wine trade commissioner?? ahahah)

      Well, to the best of my knowledge, absolute majority of the wines we drink are blends. Yes, there are some very pure, single cru wines – very few of them, if you think about it. For instance, the Avignonese VNdM here is 100% Sangiovese, but it is still a blend of the grapes harvested from the 8 best vineyards Avignonese owns. Blends allow winemakers to achieve better expression with their wines. Most of Champagne are blends. Most of the Port wines are field blends. The wine world is all inclusive, in my opinion – as along as the wine gives someone pleasure, it is a good wine.

    I don’t agree at all. Even in “India” a Master Bator give pleasure but Love is something else.
    My take it is that it is a recycle of their inability of many to excel and for more to amplify the production always scarse for the amazing gift of this earth. Because they cannot throw away so much investment, they found a way to enlarge the and push all this marketing forced behavior, and stuck up sense, in prince terms.
    I am happy for it, as the Crue become cheaper because of who sucks that marketing play: but hey! there are more Master Bators in “India” than Italian Lovers!
    Thank you for saving my money!
