Last week I made a stink about blogger ethics — something I really don’t care that much about. I alientated friends, bored readers and made myself feel like a doofus over a technical point that, all of seven days later, even I can’t bring myself to care about.
The backstory goes something like this: After not liking Chateau Lagrezétte’s Le Pigeonnier — a Cahors Malbec — the first time around, Palate Press agreed to a re-taste.
Anyway, they published the resulting re-assessment today, and writer Remy Charest gave the offended wine a good-faith second look. But:
…in the end, when I reread my notes, I can say that I didn’t like the wine once again, and that my general impression remains the same.
So we have sound and fury, signifying nothing. If that’s not blogging in a nutshell, I don’t know what is.
Read the whole thing: it’s way more interesting than my excerpt.
