Great minds?

We were chuffed to see the great Jancis's piece in the FT last Saturday was on the very same topic discussed in this Blog a few days before that.

About half the article is on Albarino. It's a pity she didn't comment on the supposed link between Albarino (trans. White Rhine) and Riesling. We'd love to know.

Here's another dangerous synonym: Morillon = both Chardonnay (as Jancis writes in her article) and Pinot Noir (as stated in her book 'Vines, grapes and Wines. The wine dinker's guide to grape varieties' published 1986). How confusing is that?
