A Wine Critic’s Realm Isn’t a Democracy

Noch was mal was zur Frage, wie man über Wein schreibt bzw. schreiben sollte. Zwar ist der Gedanke nicht neu, dass Weinkritik unvermeidbar ist und sich darum auch besser dazu bekennen sollte. Aber Asimov spitzt das ganze doch noch mal hübsch zu. Hier ein Auszug:

I believe a critic’s point of view is crucial. My job is not to act as an impartial arbiter of bottles, but as a guide, leading readers on a quest to explore what is most beautiful, fascinating, distinctive, curious, delicious and moving in wine. I hope to inspire curiosity, promote ease and comfort with wine, and provoke discussion and debate. Ultimately my aim is to eliminate the need for wine critics (at least in a utopian sense) by helping consumers become their own best authorities.
