Sébastien David petition: an extraordinary success
This petition was launched on Monday. In only some 48 hours the petition in support of Sébastien Davis, who has been ordered to destroy 2078 bottles of his 2016 Coef Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil because of an alleged excess of volatile acidity, has reached an extraordinary more than 52,000 signatures. It broke through the 50,000 barrier around 8.30 am BST this morning.
Until late yesterday afternoon the numbers signing had been growing steadily to over 10,000. Suddenly the petition exploded – really took off – doubling, trebling over the course of yesterday evening.
