盲目品尝是艰难的 - 与罗伯特帕克品尝波尔多2005年

blind_wine_tasting.
On Wednesday evening I attended a tasting of fifteen wines from Bordeaux 2005. The vintage was widely hailed as superb and pre-recession demand drove the prices into the stratosphere. Aside from the outrageous apparent quality of the wines, the tasting had two other attractions: the ability to taste some of the top wines blind and to do so in the company of Robert Parker.

我们100多家美国在市中心的酒店设有一个房间,以便于活动,由此组织执行葡萄酒研讨会。我早期十五分钟到达,在桌子上难以找到座位。将五葡萄酒预先倒入五个iso眼镜,有一些面包和奶酪。在我的桌子上是来自芝加哥,威斯康星州,特拉华州和纳帕的人。他们也付了很多钱:每次795美元(我很幸运,足以让那些不能参加的人的机票)。空中几乎嗡嗡作响。

尽管品尝是盲人,但每个人都知道葡萄酒的阵容,它包括帕克分数(在括号中)的葡萄酒中的一些最繁华的葡萄酒表示:
Angelus (98) • Cos d’Estournel (98) • Ducru Beaucaillou (97) • Haut Brion (98) • Lafite Rothschild (96+) • La Mission Haut Brion (97) • Larcis Ducasse (98) • Latour (96+) • L’Eglise Clinet (100) • Margaux (98+) • Montrose (95) • Pape Clement (98) • Pavie (98+) •Le Gay (95) • Troplong Mondot (99)

In addition to my excitement about tasting these wines, I was eager to see Parker engage in a blind tasting. Blind tastings are incredibly challenging, of course, and can humble even the most accomplished tasters. On the other hand, Parker is known to be a formidable taster, and he has made some impressive claims about his own tasting abilities. In the famous profile of Parker published in大西洋组织(那个帕克展示on his web site)在2000年12月,作者写道,帕克“将每个[葡萄酒]的感觉存储到永久性味觉记忆中。当我向他询问他工作的机械方面时,他告诉我,事实上,他记得他在过去的三十二年里撒红了的每一个葡萄酒,并且在几分钟之内,他所赐的每一个分数也是。“

2005年是一个复古,在他的记忆中显然很新鲜(他说它是他在职业生涯中经历过的最伟大的波尔多复古),并鉴于他表达他味道的葡萄酒,我显然非常热衷于see how he’d fare in a blind tasting–particularly one involving his favorite wines of the vintage.阅读更多…

葡萄酒倡导作家火花伦理辩论 - 华尔街日报

wsj_logo_big.
The Wall Street Journalhas今天的故事D1题为“葡萄酒倡导作家火花道德辩论:虽然新闻稿的创始人冠军独立,两位审稿人接受了旅行。”

记者大卫凯斯马德尔详细介绍了罗伯特·帕克的葡萄酒倡导者的政策与实践之间的分歧。他承认报告这个博客最初提出了问题(见我的与帕克和评论家Jay Miller的原始通信这里and a follow up这里)。

The Wall Street Journalstory adds details that Miller accepted trips to Australia and Chile paid by wine industry groups. I contacted Wines of Argentina last month and their staff in Mendoza verified that they had also had paid for two trips for Miller to visit the country. Other parties verified that he was ferried around the country by private jet on one of those trips.

WSJ故事称,帕克拒绝回应面试请求,米勒和标记普通有admittedto taking press trips to Portugal, Israel and Greece. Joining a press trip from a regional or national association is not out of ordinary for wine writers; it’s that Robert Parker laid down ethical standards years ago that state “It is imperative for a wine critic to pay his own way” and “it is imperative to keep one’s distance from the trade.” Parker’s lack of response to the reporter seems odd since not only would it clarify the situation but he encouraged reporters to call him just last month,在他的论坛上写作“今天......大多数记者甚至不打电话,如果他们想写我......没有意义让我提供了一个良好的报告的反驳,破坏了他们的故事线......”

葡萄酒倡导作家火花道德辩论“ [华尔街日报]

Policy and practice at the Wine Advocate – Parker responds

在最近的一份发布中,我发表了我与Robert Parker和Jay Miller的通信关于帕克设定的道德准则与葡萄酒倡导者的一些贡献者的行为之间表观分歧。

One claim that came up several times in the over 130 comments was that Mr. Miller took one or two trips to Argentina, organized and paid for by Wines of Argentina, a trade group representing over 100 wineries that also receives government funding according to their web site. I contacted Wines of Argentina and they confirmed that they paid for and organized the two trips and several people in the trade there also confirmed them. Robert Parker has also now admitted as well but referred to them as “vineyard tours.” There was apparently more to the trips than just that–multiple sources said that there were lunches and dinner at wineries, and I was also told by several people that Miller was ferried around the country by private jet during one visit.

我昨天提醒米勒,阿根廷的葡萄酒告诉我旅行被编制并要求他发表评论。不久之后,帕克posted a message这表明米勒将无法再能够采取“阿根廷葡萄酒支付的葡萄园旅游”。

Parker在几年前奠定了道德指导方面 - 这是他的权威这么大的来源,并确定了所有其他葡萄酒批评者的标准。一些贡献者对葡萄酒倡导者和规定的政策的行动之间的分歧是(并且仍然仍然是仍然存在的是,鉴于出版物的权力,合法和重要的问题;如果葡萄酒倡导者正在弯曲规则,那就是他读者有权知道的事情。

在周末,在他的网站上,Parker characterizedthose of us raising these concerns as the work of “extremists who could care less about the truth.” On the contrary, the truth was precisely what I’ve been after. Perhaps the larger issue then is Parker seemed to resent that people wanted to know the truth. While Parker lamented the state of journalism, the他引用的例子of good journalism seem to be anything that speaks well of him.

但新闻表演正是我一直在做的事情。我和合法的问题一起去了帕克和米勒,他们是避免的。我和阿根廷的葡萄酒谈过,真相出来了。那是新闻。而不是用仰视(“极端分子”或“jihadists”或eliding wine bloggers with the Taliban)在我和那些提出了非常合法问题的人,帕克应该把这一集借鉴,这表明他的命令和葡萄酒社区很久以前所建立的道德标准的严肃性。

Since Mr. Parker has shown an affection for ending his interventions with quotes, here’s an aphorism that he might remember from his days as a lawyer: “If you have the facts on your side, pound the facts. If you have the law on your side, pound the law. If you have neither on your side, pound the table.”

葡萄酒倡导者的变化?与帕克和米勒对应

Robert Parker在葡萄酒新闻中为德国道德进行了令人钦佩的高标准。在介绍其葡萄酒买家指南的最新版本中,他强调需要葡萄酒批评者,以避免潜在的利益冲突,并列出他认为必须坚持的道德指导。除了其他事情之外,他说这是葡萄酒批评的迫切需要自己的方式。以航空公司门票,酒店客房,宾馆等形式的免费热情好客,不应该在国外或在这个国家接受。他还写道: - 与贸易保持专业关系很重要,我相信消费者倡导者所需的独立立场往往毫不奇怪,导致与葡萄酒贸易的对抗关系。它可以是别无其他的。为了有效地追求独立性,必须保持与贸易的距离。虽然这种态度可能被解释为实际上,但这种独立保证难以击中,坦诚和不受影响的评论。“

在他的与erobertparker.com主持人,Mark Squires,Mike Steinberger的对应在坦帕湾葡萄酒麦加,伯尔尼的“伯尔尼周末,”一场公路旅行。通过点击在ErobertParker论坛中阅读一手账户。葡萄酒倡导者的Jay Miller,他们的社论包括审查西班牙,澳大利亚和阿根廷的葡萄酒是与会者之一。此外,西班牙葡萄酒米勒评论中还有三家进口商:埃里克萨洛蒙,帕特里克马塔和何塞牧师。米勒的参与纯粹的社交活动似乎与Parker的互动政策似乎明显地与贸易互动的政策差异。

This isn’t the only example of Wine Advocate contributors deviating from Parker’s guidelines. Last year, Mark Squires, who reviews the dry wines of Portugal as well as the wines of Israel, Greece, Lebanon, Cyprus, Bulgaria and Romania for the Advocate, went to Israel on a trip,在论坛中的话语,“”由以色列政府支付......鲍勃批准提前批准。“

据我所知,帕克没有在印刷或在线获得任何指示,他已经放松了葡萄酒倡导者的道德标准。但根据这些例子,鉴于这么多帕克的权力源于他的诚信超越责备的看法,似乎是葡萄酒倡导者是否改变了与贸易的无偿热情好客和互动的政策。金宝博滚球娱乐首页。所以我通过电子邮件向Robert Parker提出了问题并在此处发布他的回复。我还从Jay Miller寻求澄清。我发布了我们的交流。

帕克先生,

我一直钦佩你的独立性。我很好奇葡萄酒倡导者的一些感知的变化,并欢迎你的评论。

In a recent thread, Jay Miller was shown to be on a road trip that included three dinners at Bern’s restaurant in Tampa Bay in the presence of, among others, three importers (Eric Solomon, Patrick Mata, and Jose Pastor) whose wine he reviews for the Advocate. [关联]

Separately, Mark Squires admitted last year that he took a trip to Israel that was not paid for by the Advocate–with your approval, he says. [关联]

我很好奇这些行动如何广场与葡萄酒买家指南中的政策,部分阅读:“葡萄酒评论家必须支付自己的方式。免费提供航空公司,酒店客房,宾馆等的格纹热情好客,不应该在国外或这个国家接受......为了有效地追求独立,必须保持与贸易的距离。虽然这种态度可以被解释为超越,但这种独立保证难以击中,坦诚和不受限制的评论。“

最近的乡绅和米勒的行为让我想知道:葡萄酒倡导者的政策有变化吗?如果是这样,你是否向读者披露了?现在允许什么?

此致,

泰勒科曼,博士。

x'd文件:在erobertparker.com上没有看到的交换

EBOBLOGO.Erobertparker.com的论坛是一个生动的地方。不幸的是,它们经常被沉重的手势举起:已经开除了几个声音,并且一些甚至批评的批评的线程被全面删除。

关于迈克斯坦伯格的麦克斯蒂捷格的线程是这样的情况recent Slate column关于澳大利亚葡萄酒的状态。Mark Squires,他调节帕克委员会,指责Steinberger为故事选择“偏见”零售商。其中一个零售商用抗拒偏见索赔的刺激射门。此后不久,该线程删除了其总体。

随后,Steinberger有一封乡绅的电子邮件交换。Steinberger质疑删除线程的决定并表示它不公平地剥夺了他有机会回应淹没的断言。乡绅没有被动,随之而来的讨论。随着Steinberger的许可,我在这里发布交换。坐下来通过爆米花。

虚构的餐厅赢得葡萄酒观众奖卓越奖

如果你决定获得葡萄酒观众奖卓越的餐厅葡萄酒名单,你需要什么?根据罗宾戈德斯坦的答案是250美元和微软单词。餐厅实际上不是必需的。

Goldstein, the author of葡萄酒试验,发布了一个新网站描述了如何发明的餐馆名称,osteria l'Intepido,即“无所畏惧”的riff。然后他键入了一个菜单(“对某种笨拙的Nouvelle-Italial Recives的乐趣合并”),将葡萄酒名单放在一起,并提交给葡萄酒观众 - 以及250美元的费用。该清单批准并获得了卓越奖(见截屏)。

然后Goldstein决定增加扭曲。至the tape

当然,它的困扰当然存在一个不存在的餐馆可以赢得卓越奖。但它的令人不安的是,奖项似乎与葡萄酒名单的质量尤其如此,即使是由葡萄酒观众的自身标准也是如此。虽然我提交的主要葡萄酒列表是由相当标准的意大利选择的选择,但OsteriaL’Intrepido的葡萄酒名单很大程度上是从中选择的在过去的20年里,葡萄酒观众的最低意大利葡萄酒

单击“完成”列表“,该列表与WS注释和分数。

Reached by phone today, Goldstein said that he also presented this information at the annual meeting of the American Association of Wine Economists in Portland over the weekend.

“我没有任何合格的经验证据ty of the restaurants other than my own impressions,” he said. “I wanted to see what the standards of the Awards of Excellence were. The results speak for themselves.” His experience will be part of an academic paper he is working on about standards for wine awards.

In 2003, Amanda Hesser explored the Wine Spectator restaurant awards in a piece in the Times entitled “葡萄酒奖似乎很容易到来。“她得出结论,3,573家餐馆,葡萄酒观众625,275美元。但年度申请费是175美元,而不是今年获得申请费的250美元。

Overall, I’m disappointed with the quality of box wine here in the U.S. But the time for good box wine has come for environmental as well as economic reasons as我在这件作品中争论

盒子里有一些希望的葡萄酒景观。不幸的是,40美元,3升D-Tour.由勃艮第的Dominique Lafon和Daniel Johnnes进口,Daniel Boulud的餐厅的葡萄酒总监Dimique Lafon,已被暂时退出市场(搜索这款葡萄酒)。However, theCuvee de Pena.,来自比利牛斯的法国边的旧藤格良,仍然可用(找到这款葡萄酒)。And the newest and brightest star is the $11 unoaked, organically grown malbec calledYellow + Blue销售在1升Tetrapak(不是箱包;找到这款葡萄酒)。There’s also the土匪来自加利福尼亚州(找到这款葡萄酒)。
