Nice post Remy. I can't argue with your assertions. I understand why winemakers may hedge their bets, but it definitely blurs the region's overall identity.

Comment on What to do when you get a bad bottle of wine by Remy Charest

Thank you, Lauren. What I've been thinking, more and more, since that happened on Friday night, is how a non-aficionado would feel. I know for a fact that bottle was defective, and I could explain it and justify it, and they still made me feel very bad. Someone less experienced would have felt intimidated and unable to respond, perhaps even humiliated in front of other guests, and certainly unwilling to try his luck again with another bottle. The wine world is intimidating enough, restaurants should never behave that way and make things worse.

Dear Remy What a well written article. You were so articulate in expressing the frustration that so many "wine" aficionado's experience at a restaurant. I was so appalled for you with the server swinging the older bottle of wine and so sympathetic for the entire "tone " of the management attitude. I hope this article is an "eye-opener" for many restaurants and used as a training example at restaurant management courses. Well done on your part! Your article was an education in wine tasting itself. Thanks from all of us out here! I do hope you get to enjoy those clams again under much better circumstances. Lauren
