from Robert Parker
I have been fortunate enough to attend a lot of extraordinary dinners where some of the world’s top rated wines have been served. However, I don’t think I have ever been to an event where the wines were as consistently superb as they were at this charity gala dinner that benefitted indigent families in Singapore. I thank Mr. Soo Hoo and Arnaud Compas as well as Lisa Perrotti-Brown for putting together this extraordinary menu and wine pairings. This was one of the most memorable nights of compelling wines and prodigious cuisine I have ever experienced. And it was all for a wonderful charity in Singapore.
Arnaud is incredibly passionate about wine and his enthusiasm is infectious. He launches into lengthy explanations behind his championing of the wines on offer even drawing diagrams to describe the way the geography of certain regions can impact the wine.

Astonishing tasting last night. It was a real pleasure to meet Arnaud who was excellent – incredibly informative, educational and engaging. The wines were a revelation.Charles on The Great White April 2012
Is there such a thing as an intelligent and unpretentious wine expert? Enter Arnaud. This French man knows his wines, in a way that doesn't intimate or smack of pompous righteousness, which is so very important when it comes to a night of wine tasting and education.
It became immediately apparent that Monsieur Compas is a man who knows his wine. Excellent in his descriptions, he led us through the evening as a good shepherd should – helping to increase our understanding and most of all our enjoyment. Arnaud is not a pretentious Gaul; he favours enjoyment over snobbery via his clear expertise in the field.
