What Price Bordeaux?

Title: Wine & Philosophy
Author: Benjamin Lewin MW
Publisher: Vendange
We were on one of our research visits to Bordeaux. The plane from London taxied slowly into the terminal. We disembarked and walked in a line of passengers to immigration. The immigration booths were locked up and abandoned; there was no way through into the deserted airport. My wife turned to me and said, "Now you've gone and done it." She had been saying for ages that my incessant requests to the French authorities as I tried to establish the real facts behind the Bordeaux wine industry would get me banned from France. Bordeaux is one of the greatest places on earth for producing fine wine; but it has a mystique based on centuries of obscurity about details, and the light of transparency is rarely welcome. The security alert that had closed the airport was a good metaphor.
