French Study Finds Pesticide Residues in Wines

Here's a top story in the news today - a French study by the Bordeaux-based lab of Pascal Chatonnet has found pesticide residues in 90% of the 300 French wines it tested.

Decanter ran the story here.

Decanter quoted Chatonnet as saying, ‘Even though the individual molecules were below threshold levels of toxicity, there is a worrying lack of research into the accumulation effect, and how the molecules interact with each other."
