    What a treat to have someone as generationally embedded in the wine culture as Monsieur Faiveley on the show. Great job Gary! Just to comment: could it be that the “Sideways” phenomenon influenced the current Burgundy price hikes? Just thinking that Sideways had such an influence on Pinot Noir sales in general that it would ultimately influence the price of Burgundy wines–the mecca of Pinot Noir.
