The obvious, graciously omitted

Le Vieux Continent copiera-t-il les vins du Nouveau Monde?

(Will Old Europe copy the wines of the New World?)

From astute reader Michael, who noted that in a Reuters article discussing the state of the wine business in Europe the New World mentioned had some curious omissions. Apart from Mentioning Chile and Australia, they did see any need to hurt anyone’s tender feelings by naming names.

Note too when it’s acceptable to use any sort of warrior speak vocabulary in EUtopia:

Brussels embarks on conquest to recover wine markets
You go out there and git ‘em, champ!

The fuse is lit!
