FROM WINE FUTURE HK: The Grand Tasting named ‘The Magical 20’ leads a series of tastings for up to 1,000 participants in which Parker will show 20 Bordeaux wines that he considers will be the ones to watch out for in the near future, once the frenzy about premier crus and icon wines of Bordeaux starts fading. According to many experts, Parker´s tasting could have a tremendous impact in the trading of Bordeaux wines, especially in Asia.

“For my tasting at Winefuture, I have chosen estates that produce wines of “first growth quality” although technically not first growths. And because of that are under-valued and very smart acquisitions”, Parker says.

The tasting of 20 wines from the impressive 2009 vintage, rated as one of the best ever in the history of Bordeaux. This is a unique opportunity for the participants because it is the first time that the 2009 vintage will be showed at public event since the wines have been bottled, organiser Pancho Campo MW argues.

Robert Parker will be accompanied by representatives from each of the 20 chateaux who will help him to describe the wines and the estates. They will also assist Robert Parker in answering the questions from the audience.

1. Ch. Cos D’Estournel,
