Bordeaux in Wine Spectator's 2012 TOP100!

The Wine Spectator 2012 TOP 100 list is finally available and Bordeaux have once again been very well represented!

article originally featured in Wine Spectator Nov 1st 2012


Every year since 1988, Wine Spectator has compiled a list of the most exciting wines we've reviewed over the past 12 months. These 100 wines reflect significant trends, recognize outstanding producers and spotlight successful regions and vintages around the world.

In 2012, our list was selected from more than 17,000 new releases our editors rated in our independent blind tastings. More than 5,500 of these wines earned outstanding or classic ratings (90 points or higher on Wine Spectator's 100-point scale). We narrowed the list down based on four criteria: quality (represented by score); value (reflected by release price); availability (measured by cases made or imported); and what we call the "X-factor"-the excitement generated by a rising-star producer, a benchmark wine or a significant milestone for a wine region. But no equation determines the final selections: These choices reflect our editors' judgment and passion about the wines we tasted.
