Some 220 journalists from 33 countries were welcomed by Château Haut-Brion’s Prince Robert of Luxembourg, and Philippe Castéja, President of the Conseil des Grand Crus Classés of 1855 (Médoc & Sauternes). Following a tasting of Médoc and Sauternes Grand Cru Classé wines from the 2005 and 2008 vintages there was a “9-star” dinner created by a trio of three-star chefs: Alain PASSARD (L’Arpège, Paris), Anne-Sophie PIC (Maison Pic, Valence), and Yannick ALLENO (Le Meurice, Paris). The food was accompanied by a selection of Grand Crus Classés with commentary on each vintage offered by the Best Sommeliers of the World.
