Robert Parker originally started his career as a lawyer. During his studies, he discovered his passion for wines, especially wines from Bordeaux. Since 1978, this passion has developed into one of the most important wine guides in the world. Parker achieved his breakthrough with his decidedly positive review of the 1982 Bordeaux vintage, and quickly his judgment became so relevant that he even influenced the style of the wines, which in many places became increasingly concentrated and opulent in line with his taste. Since 2012, he has increasingly withdrawn from the business of tasting and left the field to competent wine experts selected by him, each specializing in different countries and regions. Stephan Reinhardt has taken over this responsibility for Germany, and Lisa Perrotti-Brown has now taken over this task for Bordeaux after Neal Martin.
From our point of view, the ratings, Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) have a particularly high relevance and helps to understand wines.

Born on September 29, 1958 in Los Angeles, California, James Cameron Suckling is nowadays one of the world's leading wine critics and, what not everyone knows, also a cigar expert and professional cigar tester. His path to wine initially led him through his interest in good food and cooking. The success story of James Suckling and the Wine Spectator finally takes off from this moment. In 1984, he came to Europe for the first time and visited many wineries. In 1985, he opened the European branch of the magazine in Paris. Today, James Suckling lives in Tuscany and is involved in a variety of wine projects, but no longer works for Wine Spectator. The rating scale is based on the common 100-point scale as introduced by Robert Parker.
