Shades of grey

Decanter - - LETTERS -

YouR JulY EDI­TIoN fea­tured some of the most cur­rent, and po­lar­is­ing, de­bates in the wine world. Chris Batchelder dis­missed bio­dy­namic wines as ‘su­per­sti­tious clap­trap’ (‘let­ters’); An­drew Jef­ford ar­gued per­sua­sively for the sci­en­tific proof of ter­roir; Jane An­son made a plea for in­no­va­tive Bordeaux pro­duc­ers to re­claim their au­then­tic­ity, and Rob MacCul­loch cel­e­brated the qual­ity wines made en­tirely from pur­chased grapes. And all this in the week I read that wine has now been pro­duced from scratch, in the lab, with­out the grow­ing of any grapes at all.
