Her today's FT article is entitled "Young Americans" http://www.ft.com/cms/s/2/5468ab1a-66dd ... z2Pfor9Zz4
I am delighted to read towards the end that there is a perceptible swing in the US away from turbocharged versions of some international grape varieties towards much fresher, lighter wines that are more expressive of individual vineyards. I have already sensed this from some posts here and elsewhere but this is the first time I have seen it stated so boldly.
On the other hand Bordeaux still seems to be veering in the opposite direction, e.g. Château Figeac's recent appointment of Michel Rolland probably intended to turbocharge the wine so as to qualify for promotion into Class A next time round.
Is it naive to hope that the Bordelais are behind the curve and will regret their continuing tack in the spoofulated direction?
