How does Jancis Robinson feel about screw-top wines?

I respect winemakers prepared to risk the scorn of consumers by applying screw caps because they want consumers to experience their wines in the peak of condition. The real problem is less all-out, obvious cork taint that tastes obviously moldy, but slight cork taint that robs a wine of its fruit; but you generally need to be the winemaker to recognize that the wine is not tasting its best.
