While Robert Parker is still seen by many as the King of Wine Critics and The Wine Spectator still has the largest readership of any wine publication, many new wine critics have popped up or branched out over the last couple of years. In fact, Robert Parker's one time protege, Antonio Galloni, and former Editor of the Wine Spectator, James Suckling, have recently started their own publications. In this tasting we will taste 6 wines rated highly by at least one publication but quite differently by another and let you be the judge.
