Tip of the Day
Who can you trust for Bordeaux ratings and scores?
Decanter Magazine, especially the magazine. Not so much the medals awarded at the annual judging. A positive review from Decanter is well-earned.
The Wine Enthusiast, if the wine is rated by RV, Roger Voss.
James Suckling–more reliable than Parker’s Wine Advocate which has lost its focus.
Writer Jane Anson for on the scene, accurate information and assessments.
