This month I've been dealing with the cork companies. Mostly getting samples, discussing price, and most importantly, asking what they are doing to reduce cork taint.
They all have their methods and technologies and they all claim to be the company that done the most to eliminate TCA. I've seen the numbers, and the graphs, and the presentations.
What I really want to know is : What is the incidence of corked bottles in the market today?
Gary Vaynerchu(c)k says its 1 in 2500. I strongly disagree. Please leave a comment on your corked wine experience. I figure 1 in 60 for me.
( I know, I know...let's leave the screwcaps out of the equation)
