Parker was the first to apply a numeric score to rate the quality of each wine he tastes. Nevertheless, at the beginning of each issue of the newsletter he reminds his readers that his numerical ratings are "utilized only to enhance and complement the thorough tasting notes, which are my primary means of communicating my judgements to you."
In addition to The Wine Advocate (from which the wine database included with the software is derived -- click here to learn more about this process), Parker is the author of several of the wine world's most definitive books: Bordeaux, Burgundy and The Wines of the Rhône Valley and Provence.
Parker was the first non-Frenchman to write a wine column for L'Express magazine, and was awarded the Chevalier de l'Ordre du Mérite National in 1992.
