CANNES, France -- He was born in Baltimore, became a lawyer, and now lives comfortably in the Maryland countryside with bulldogs and a bloodhound named J. Edgar Hoover.
But his reviews in the Wine Advocate can alter the price of wine around the world.

Is Robert Parker too influential? Jonathan Nossiter's new documentary, Mondovino, which premiered this week at the Cannes Film Festival, leans that way.

A movie about Baltimore wine? Terrific idea.
There are several commercial vineyards just north of the city, Boordy and Basignani to name two. And my neighbor across the street has about 30 plantings, and harvests City Merlot. In fact, WS is missing a big story here.

By the way, the Michael Moore movie won the top prize at Cannes, just edging out the Parker movie.
Some people have no taste.
