Gérard Basset MW MS OBE / Best Sommelier in the World 2007 , Pro (United Kingdom)  had a tasting of  3 Wines  from  3 Producers 

“Château Haut-Brion, Péssac-Léognan, France, 1989, 100pts. Perhaps the most harmonious wine I have ever tasted. This wine had it all - just perfect and sensational. This wine is just from another planet!”

Ken Gargett, Wine Writer (Australia)  had a tasting of  15 Wines  from  1 Producers 

“Cloudy Bay To Koko (Sauvignon Blanc) 2005 /
An immediate impression of smelly socks for me. No secret that this is not my favourite wine. I do like the texture, though. Even with that, this is a little more muted than I expected. For other vintages, the 2006 To Koko is a much creamier wine than the 2007. This one has notes of pears, mostly stewed pears. A firm style with some chunky acidity and a blocky finish.
Winemaker, Tim Heath, calls this wine the 'pinot of sauv blancs'. It remains the ultimate 'love-it-or-hate-it' wine. Guess where I fall!
As for a score, for the flavours, I’d go 84; for the texture, 92. So split the difference.

Omar Khan, Wine Writer (United States)  had a tasting of  8 Wines  from  6 Producers 

“Mouton Rothschild 1947 / Philippe Dhalluin of Mouton had told me as I was heading off to taste this some years back from the storied cellars of The Beau Rivage in Geneva, “It has really hit its stride recently, it is magnificent.” He was certainly right relative to the stirring showing of this wine in a relatively Right Bank vintage. This to me very clearly is the wine of the vintage in the Medoc. And the “hot vintage” elements last evening were so gracefully kept in check by Mouton’s beautiful structure.
Ginger, coffee, cassis and mint swirl enticingly on the nose, and the wine opens with mint and black fruit, some apricot notes. At the mid palate poise and opulence seem to be dueling for precedence, but then the Mouton menthol, spices and nuttiness, and here some caramel and cassis, almost overtake the experience, and the nicely rounded tannins, and the gracious pervading core of fruit, the spice enlivened composure, lively if subtle acidity, along with truffles captivate on the simply bravura finish. 98 Points

“Clos du Mesnil 1979-2003 Tasting with Richard Juhlin.”

Izak Litwar / Bordeaux Expert, Pro (Denmark)  had a tasting of  52 Wines  from  1 Producers 

“Château La Mission Haut Brion 1920-2015 /
La Mission Haut Brion 2010 100p / Tasted three times. Consistent notes. Velvet and silk everywhere, extremely intense on the nose and powerful on the palate, incredibly sophisticated, fantastic complexity, structure and length. Aftertaste lasts for 2 minutes. Sheer class and style. This wine has evolved in perfect way since I tasted it from barrel in March 2011. Paradise in heaven! In September 2013, this wine was a little bit closed.”

Tess Murray / Sommelier, Pro (Australia)  had a tasting of  3 Wines  from  2 Producers 

“Penfolds Bin 60A 1962 / 100 points. Thick, opaque, ruby colour with enormous viscosity. Big nose! Powerful, spicy and surprisingly vegetal with nutmeg and Asian spicy aromas. The full-bodied palate surprises again with moderately high acidity. Big chewy tannins are forming solid backbone to intense dark fruitiness. Spices, licorice, nutmeg and cacao with bitter chocolate flavours are all well pronounced in mineral finish. Big and sensitive wine with no flabbiness thanks to delightful minerality. ”

John Kapon / CEO / Ackerr Merrall & Condit, Pro (United States)  had a tasting of  17 Wines  from  13 Producers 

“It was Saturday night, a seemingly improbable Day Two of this Bacchanalian extravaganza. The Rev was one day older, and we were all very much wiser thanks to the incredible array of once in a lifetime wines experienced the night before. There was not much more to do except do it again.”

Gagan Sharma / Sommelier, Sommelier (India)  had a tasting of  11 Wines  from  1 Producers 

“Château d´Yquem 2005 / Clear, goldish colour. The very intense nose is partly closed but still offers a peculiar complexity of aromas – apricot marmalade, coconuts, toastiness and vanilla. A semi sweet taste with s moderately high acidity and very concentrated, glycerol-like intensity. Lovely marriage of apricot marmalade and toasty oak. Very complex flavours with silky elegance and warming finish. By far the most exciting flavour palate of all 2005 Sauternes. ”

Richard Juhlin / The number One champagne expert in the world, Pro (Sweden)  had a tasting of  25 Wines  from  18 Producers 

“Paul Bara Special Club 2004 / Goodness gracious, what a surprise I received when I poured my club bottle and the wine was deep pink! I had absolutely no idea that there was such a thing as Special Club Rosé nowadays! One can only offer one's congratulations. The wine is very reminiscent of the non-vintage variety with somewhat greater weight, and refinement rich in mineral. Otherwise it gives the feeling of being just as young and unevolved. The fruitiness is vegetal with tones of beetroot and the beginnings of intense tones of wild bird pâté. When the wine is aired a great Pinot roundness makes its appearance.”

Tuomas Meriluoto MW, MW (Finland)  had a tasting of  10 Wines  from  1 Producers 

“Marqués de Riscal is one of the oldest Rioja wineries. Founded in Elciego (Álava) in 1858 by Guillermo Hurtado de Amézaga, from the outset it has been a point of reference in the winemaking business at both national and international level.”
