Recent Ratings

Scoring or rating any wine will almost always be somewhat subjective. I believe the task of scoring expensive wines is particularly tricky. Questions such as  “ is it worth the money? ”,  “ is it that much better than the previous wine? ” or “ is it ready now or will it improve? ”, are bound  to cross the mind.

The scores allocated to each wine below were polled after asking participants to judge only on merit. A minimum of 28 scores were collated to provide an average. If you wish to view a hundred other tasting notes, please visit Cellertracker.com. This is by far the best Wine app.
