President Jacques Chirac of France Robert Parker is the most followed and influential critic of French wines in the entire world. -- Review
About the Author
Robert M. Parker, Jr., has been the author and publisher of The Wine Advocate for over twenty-five years. He has won countless awards, including two of France's highest presidential honors: in 1993, President Francois Mitterrand pronounced him a Chevalier dans l'Ordre National du Merite. In 1999, President Jacques Chirac signed a decree appointing Parker a Chevalier dans L'Ordre de la Legion d'Honneur, and in 2005, elevated his title to Officier. He is the author of many books about wine, including Bordeaux, Burgundy, The Wines of the Rhône Valley, and Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide. He lives in Maryland with his wife, Patricia, his daughter, Maia, and numerous basset hounds and English bulldogs.

Compared to the 6th edition, the writings about the wineries and their wines are way shorter and most of the time of little if any interest.
Before buying the upcoming 8th edition I will check it out and if it has not improved, I will definitely skip it.
May be Robert Parker should just stick to Bordeaux wines and not try to expand worldwide.
There is a honest discussion on wine tasting and interesting comments on most wine makers.
Might prefer something in a smaller format for traveling and wine shopping.
The rest is reviewed by other people.
Also some people wonder if the high ethical standards Parker demands are still met:
One Wine expert writes on his website: >> "It is imperative for a wine critic to pay his own way. Gratuitous hospitality in the form of airline tickets, hotel rooms, guest houses, etc., should never be accepted either abroad or in this country...In order to pursue independence effectively, it is imperative to keep one's distance from the trade. While this attitude can be interpreted as aloofness, such independence guarantees hard-hitting, candid, and uninfluenced commentary."
The recent actions of Squires and Miller have left me wondering: Has there been a change in policy for The Wine Advocate reviewers? If so, have you disclosed that to your readers? What is now allowed? <<
