VDP has no doubt some admirable intentions (e.g. the Burgundy model) but seems unable to resist continual tweaking, growers seem also to be branching out with new wine names and conflict between their practices and our carefully learned knowledge of the 1971 wine law terminology seems to be growing. Rationalisation and stability is urgently needed to regain consumer comprehension and confidence.

These days I think of less well known producers such as Merkelbach, Reuscher-Haart, Jakoby Pur, etc. They are making wines that come closer to what I look for in kabinett.
