The topic of wine ratings has provoked some of the liveliest discussions here on Vinography, and the same also seems to be true on Eric Asimov's blog, The Pour. Eric posted his thoughts, good and bad, about ratings last week and it has generated a lot of response from his readers. The debate isn't materially different than those which have raged here on Vinography, but there's a lot of good discussion.
As a side note, it's interesting to see that Asimov himself has not joined the fray. Blogging for the New York Times seems to not include taking part in the discussion with the community.
