The Second Annual Heritage Auctions Blind Wine Challenge, co-sponsored by The Intelligent Collector magazine, stopped at the most important wine destination in the East: Hong Kong.
A crowd of more than 40 participants representing a wide swath of Hong Kong wine-lovers gathered at Crown Wine Cellars for an in-depth tasting of eight world-class wines, including a 1982 Lynch Bages, 2005 Domaine Leflaive Puligny Montrachet Les Pucelles, and 2004 Vega Sicilia Unico. Winners competed at the Las Vegas Finale at Jean Georges at the Aria Resort and Casino against winners from New York, Dallas, Los Angeles and Chicago. The top taster was awarded the title of “World’s Best Taster.”
