Wine Spectator Top 100 – 2010

Recent, celebra publicatie Wine Spectator a dat publicitatii topul lor anual ce cuprinde cele mai remarcabile vinuri degustate de specialistii redactiei in decursul anului in curs.

Daca e sa ma intrebati pe mine, topul e unul destul de americanit, dar ce e interesant e faptul ca, asa cum veti vedea mai jos (pentru ca pe langa numele vinurilor lista contine atat punctajul obtinut in urma evaluarii, dar si pretul), nu de putine ori veti gasi vinuri la preturi mai decente surclasand pe altele mult mai pretentioase si mai putin prietenoase cu buzunarul iubitorilor de vinuri. Nimic nou imi veti zice, pentru ca observam acest lucru in fiecare zi pe rafturile magazinelor, nu?

Se mai poate remarca deasemenea numarul relativ mic de vinuri din lumea veche, ceea ce confirma inca o data faptul ca acestea pierd constant teren in fata celor din lumea noua (cel putin in topul preferintelor specialistilor de peste ocean).

  1. Alin, pierd teren pt ca la WS sunt anumite gusturi. Astfel de topuri nu reprezinta decat o reflectare a anumitor gusturi in materie de vinuri. Pui pariu ca un top facut de Decanter, nu ar arata chiar asa? 🙂 In plus, nu se va sti niciodata, exact, pe ce criterii este facut un astfel de top. Daca stai sa analizezi in detaliu, luand in considerare nota si pretul, unele vinuri ar trebui sa fie mai bine clasate…

    Normal ca sunt favorizate vinurile din Lumea Noua, ele domina piata din SUA. Si, cum bine ai remarcat si tu, am obs ca anul acesta topul e americanit la greu.

  2. Ciprian,

    Nu pun pariu pentru ca sunt sigur ca topul Decanter ar arata altfel. La fel si un top Vinul.Ro, nu? :))

    Yankeii astia! 🙂

  3. Pozitiile 33 si 35 sunt cele mai interesante. Cei de la Tablas Creek sunt replica fidela a francezilor, inclusiv clonele de vita, cat si procentajul soiurilor in cupaj, au fost importate de la Chateau de Beaucastel.
    Doar pretul (inzecit) si nu calitatea, face diferenta.
    Buna si pozitia ungurilor, cu un Tokaji pe 28.

  4. Eu cred ca sunt multe vinuri interesante in top, dar de care nici n-am auzit.

    Si spaniolii stau destul de bine dupa parerea mea.
