I watched the documentary last night, thanks to your blog post.  It certainly confirmed the vast disparity of opinions that I've discovered exist in Saint Emilion since becoming a winemaker
here.  But two things really troubled me.  First, oddly, was the choice of music! I think that it was 'malin' for the producers to select such awful 'stuck-in-the-past' music for a
feature on a wine region that claims to have a 'modern' approach and ambitions.  Second, your comment on the feedback you received from the committee, that Valandraud is a 'sure thing' in 10
years, is astounding.  Yes, I think that you deserved it in 2006.  But that a committee member should give you that kind of feedback strikes me as unprofessional.  A lot can happen
in 10 years.  Unfortunately, your response seemed to imply that you accept this vision of gerontocracy, rather than merit.  I'm sure that your interview was 'sur le vif' and that one has
to play by the rules (and I haven't read any of your other reactions to the 2006 classement)... but my reaction to the feedback you received from the committee d'appel was 'yuck'.  It seemed
to speak directly to the problems that were ultimately faced by the 2006 classification system.  Dommage for all of those, including yourself, that would have appeared to deserve more balanced
consideration.
