Xavier Planty – The Drinks Business

Xavier Planty,head of Château Guiraud, was interviewed by The Drinks Business about becoming the first Grand Cru Sauternes to carry the French AB label for being organic. He discusses the benefits he started seeing in his vineyards after farming organically, but what do they title the article?

\”French Organic Wine Quality Mixed\”

This was based on one comment which is true for all wines, not just organic. It\’s only when dealing with organic wines, where winemakers are suddenly supposed to defend an entire category of other winemakers they have no association with, that this sentence seems to have meaning with wine journalists. We\’ll love the day that all conventional winemakers have to refer to the quality of Yellowtail in every article they are in.
