Browsing your wine section and was interested to read these comments. I also initially thought these reports would be a guide and then realised they were for more `knowing' wine buyers. However, I believe they can (and have) serve both roles. Two very good examples, I travel to Europe very often and am very pleased when I can find the wines in the report, especially in the `up & coming' and `best value' sections. Secondly, my favourite white wine variety (when I can afford it!) is Alsace Riesling but have to agree with Tom Stevenson that these are now too sweet and have looked at Luxembourg whites instead, very good value. Overall the reports give interesting facts, contain some useful information on vintages etc and is a boon for the more adventurous wine drinker. Cheers `Wine Report'!
