Manager of the ROUND

Round 3 sees Tom Weir's Boomtime take the honours with 116 points. Tom, from Wine Rack in Hadley Wood, has courageously mixed his squad, with key figures

such as Wales' Shane Williams comfortably battling with NZ's Dan Carter in the points stakes. Matt Giteau leads the way with 39 points and with Australia already through to the quarter finals, he becomes an increasingly important player . Tom wins a case of Mont Tauch for his efforts and he will need all his decision-making powers to take him to the top of the overall leader board.

When Bordeaux was in fashion, it seemed almost logical that we should fetishise winemakers. Here were people responsible for brilliant acts of blending, across large estates and multiple grape varieties, including superstars such as cabernet sauvignon and merlot. These days, fashion has moved on and pinot noir is ascendant. As a result, the star of the winemaker has fallen and we find ourselves following a new star in the sky: terroir.
