Parker agrees with Lady Penelope

This en primeur game is quite a laugh- thunderbirds! Parker was  not too complimentary about the 2007 vintage but said it was better than what he expected and only awarded 100 points to two wines, both white and both my favorites agreeing that the whites were the overall winers this year; Haut Brion Blanc and Pape-Clement Blanc and Laville (La Mission’s white) was awarded 93 to 96.

Amongst his top reds were my favorites Cabernet Sauvignon dominated Margaux and La Mission Haut Brion.

The sweet wines were this year tasted by Neal Martin who works with Robert Parker on his website. He awarded Ch Climens (98-100), Yquem (96-98) and Denis Dubourdieu’s l’Extravaganza (97-98) the best marks.
