Wine-Knows: Bordeaux Garage Wines - Les Garagistes

Wine-Knows: Fine Wine and Gourmet Food Journeys for the Discerning Traveler:
"Thanks to Robert Parker, many of these garage wines have a cult-like following. In 1995 Parker rated some of the garagiste wines higher than Chateau Petrus… and the wine world has been topsy-turvy ever since. Some feel the garage wines are nothing but fruit bombs with high alcohol that are for collectors rather than wine drinkers. One writer described their popularity as “ The Emperor’s New Clothes” syndrome."
