Tasting Beat: Red & White Burgundy, Northern and Southern Rhone
Per-Henrik Mansson, 49, is Wine Spectator's leading critic on Burgundy and also
does regular tasting and reporting on the Rhone. He does news and investigative
reporting throughout Europe. Mansson joined Wine Spectator in 1987 in San Francisco,
and has been based in Europe since 1989, first in London, now in Switzerland.
His reviews of red Burgundy helped bring the classic 1990 vintage and excellent
1996 vintages to the forefront of attention. But he also warned consumers of the
much weaker 1992 and 1997 vintages and endured severe criticism from the wine trade
for his tough stance.
