The details are certainly better for the Northern Rhone wines than the Southern Rhones, but still. Food processor mentality? Good grief.
So what does he think nowadays? And where does this winery stand with the rest of the community of Northern Rhone lovers?

Say, when I might think about opening a 97 Belle Helene? Anyone had one recently?
