That small curly black hair perched next to his crusty, ravaged orifice resulted in an irritable missive by Tim James on Grape. Writing about an expensive wine released by Bilton Estate, his criticism was not only leveled at the producer of this R3╬ô├╢┬╝Γö£├¡000 bottle, the way the wine was made nor the winemaker that assisted on the project.
No, Timothy also had a go at the media, implying that most of those invited to taste this wine were not serious wine journalists. Obviously considering himself as a member of the latter, he writes: Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö¼├║I havenΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t tasted the wine and am unlikely to. The serious end of wine journalism was largely not invited to the launchΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö¼┬¼.Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö¼├æ
This statement did, of course, have the desired effect of urging journalists to comment on the whole do, as can be found in the notes under the article I have linked here.
