Bereft

A connoisseur: Thomas Jefferson’s stern regard is a reproach in itself

I cannot but feel a little bereft. My little wine world of people I know and have met is increasingly filled with MW’s. MW’s that have strived beyond the limits of commerce and consumption. Yes MW’s, the Masters of the Wine universe who seemed in times past the very pinnacle of wine knowledge and excellence.

And so they remain, but each time a new name known to me becomes one I feel just a little more lost at sea, drowned by a lack of ambition (and certainly a lot less talent).

So congratulations to Christy Canterbury, Robin Kick, Colin Gent, James Lather et al. Your ambition, diligence and drive are all to my loss. I remain firmly in my place.

Salvete!
