So, now that the Wine Advocate (that would be Robert Parker's famed publication) has replaced their main critic (Antonio Galloni) and put the critique of Loire wines on a 2-3 year rotation (a move I highly applaud because really, what do blue chip drinkers really need Loire reviews for?) Mr. P. decided to educated his readers with a video a little reminiscent of the 1987 fried egg campaign, "Your brain on drugs."
As the video is copyrighted and Mr. P. is in a litigious mood (he is sueing that former critic) I decided I decided not to risk court, so here's the gist.
+ Mr. P. warns about the dangers of no sulfur in a wine. He holds up dregs in a glass, presumably two days. "Looks like somethng from a bio-warfare lab."
+ The bottom of the glass is coated in mold, not unusual if you have bad houscleaning practices and fail to clean your glass, whether the wine is sulfured or not.
+ "Do you want this stuff growing in your innards? Natural wine is one of the dumbest things ever created," he says, then he signs off citing his acupuncture appointment.
