1947 Petrus - Another totally 'out-of-whack' rating from so called experts!!

Henry Tang, an ex-Hong Kong government official, currently a candidate for Hong Kong's top job, is also an avid wine collector. A few years back, during an interview by Hong Kong TV at his home, the camera crew zoomed in on his collection of 1947 Petrus in his wine cellar!
I know it is a great wine, but out of curiosity, I did a Google search to check its current price and rating.
I was once again stunned to find the huge difference in rating between Parker and Wine Spectator!! 100 pts vs 89 pts!!!! This is the second time I noticed such a huge difference in rating between those two authoritative sources. The first time was the 1988 Mouton Rothschild. That time it was WS that gave it 100 pts whilst Parker only gave it 89 pts!!
Whats going on?!! You are talking perfection vs just good!!! Can't they tell the difference???!!!
