Only one sommelier found the right bottle at the right temperature. Many have chosen the red Sancerre bottle from the same estate and some the white Sancerre from another vintage.
In fact three lots of these three bottles of wine were made available to the candidates. A batch at room temperature, a batch in a running service cellar and a lot in a non-plugged service cellar.
