Plastic??

Posted by Drunk as a Skunk, Mar 10, 2010.

French wine in plastic??  I was at a local dealer Saturday and ran into Cotes du Rhone in a platic bottle.  I was totally floored.  Looked like a half bottle size too.  Anyone tried this yet?

Organic?  Biodynamic? All natural?

Plastic is highly permeable, so, that seems very weird.

But perfect for Beaujolais Nouveau.  I noticed some experimentation with plastic bottles a couple of years back by Mommessin.  For long-term storage, perhaps not recommended (as far as I can tell).

Can anyone elaborate on the long-term use of plastic?  I for one would be very interested in the debate.
