Majestic sued by wine writer
Wine writer Martin Isark has issued a writ against Majestic Wine, claiming damages believed to be in the region of £50,000.
The writ alleges that without permission Majestic used a tasting note Isark had written on the 2000 vintage of Cuvée de Richard Vin de Pays de l'Aude, on the 2008 vintage which he had never tasted. According to reports the tasting note amounted to no more than the two words 'incredible value'. The writer is suing Majestic for 'false endorsements' and 'infringement of copyright'.
