Scoring is highly personal and can depend on how you feel, what you’ve eaten and how many wines you’ve tasted in the session. So my scores are very personal and I’ve only provided them to give a sense of my comparative rankings of wines tasted. I’m using a simple 100 point scale as follows:
96 – 100 Superb wines. Something special. Pure pristine fruit, great balance and mouth feel. Can’t stop until the bottle is finished!
91 – 95 Excellent wines. Very enjoyable but just missing that special “extra” to get a higher score
86 – 90 Good wine. Pleasant drinking, no major faults
Under 85 Not for me. Life’s too short…..right?
