Commenting on the release the surveys editor, Christian Davis, said:  “Once again, the findings may raise a few eyebrows among the ferment that comprises the Champagne and wine trade. But bear in mind, this is not a science – it is about people’s perceptions. But these are the perceptions of people who work in the trade, buying, selling, listing wine all the time. They are the professionals. Dismiss their views and our findings at your peril.”
