I recently joined the American Wine Society and received this interesting reference (a vintage chart). There are numerous publications that provide vintage charts (with ratings, of course) but this one is different in that it ranks vintages against each other.
Basically this means that each wine region can only have one (or two) top vintages.
Also, these ranking are updated every year based on how the wines are aging.
To use the chart simply look at the wine regions and see where I have outlined the highest ranking in red. (1 is the lowest and 10 is the highest.
The highest numbers are the best vintages.
It’s that simple…
Let me know if you agree with their rankings.
