    Would have liked to have the results of the pesticide levels in Spanish wines vs. the French.

    Not conversant with the penalties in France, this seems remarkably light. Or is this just a widespread practice, that is yet to be addressed. With 100% of a large sample displaying banned chemicals, I see nothing happening at the regional or national level.
