What does it take to earn 100 points from wine critic Robert Parker?

Veronica Sander-FCC-1In April 2015, Robert Parker gave Château Haut-Bailly’s 2009 vintage a perfect score of 100 points, comparing the Bordeaux to “the vinous equivalent of a remarkable haute couture creation from the late Coco Chanel.” According to Veronique Sanders, the president of Château Haut-Bailly, at an FCC lunch on May 25, this was the result of a draconian selection process, enormous investments to the winery and hard work from its experienced team. She also looked at the impact Parker’s 100-point scoring system has had on the wine world since 1982.

Sanders, in 1998, at the age of 30, became the general manager of Château Haut-Bailly, making her one of a very small number of women in charge of a vineyard and the fourth generation of her family to be associated with Haut-Bailly.
