Robert Parker's influence could well be on the wane, says ANTHONY ROSE, after a read of Elin McCoy's book Emperor of Wine (20; Grub Street). In McCoy's opinion, wine drinkers are turning to the Internet for more information, and the younger generation have never been enthused about aging gurus'. Rose doesn't let on exactly how much he agrees with McCoy, but he concludes that Parker might take comfort from his contribution towards helping wine drinkers make up their own minds.' His recommendation for weekend wine under a tenner is 2004 Fiano d'Avellino, Feudi di San Gregorio (9.99; Waitrose).
