James Molesworth: " I was quite impressed with the 2013 I tasted at Haut-Bailly"

James Molesworth: " I was quite impressed with the 2013 I tasted at Haut-Bailly" | Vitabella Wine Daily Gossip | Scoop.it

When I head in to taste a new vintage, I try to go in without preconceived notions. Yes, I know how the weather was and I've heard the buzz (or lack of it). But I try to block that all out once I start tasting the wines. In the end, the wines need to speak for themselves, and there's no substitute for just sitting and tasting. I want surprises to be just … and to that end, I was quite impressed with the 2013 I tasted at Haut-Bailly. So, too, was Sanders, as she has watched the wine evolve in its early stages.

Robert #Parker interview: The world's top #wine critic on tasting 10,000 bottles a year, absurd drinking notes and New World wannabes | Vitabella Wine Daily Gossip | Scoop.it
I was tasting at least 10,000 wines a year until recently – which makes around 350,000 altogether. That's a bare minimum. I'm still standing and my liver function is still OK. I take milk thistle for my liver and try to drink three times as much water to wine. If I've been tasting, I don't usually drink wine in the evening.
