Ratings & Scores

Scores. To some, they are anathema, but to many, they are extremely useful – and they certainly can sway pricing and collectable-ness of a given wine. This list represents most of the professional critic’s scores and reviews we use here at BPW, which is a bit more than most. We like the small independent quality startups such as Rhone Report quite a lot! For more information of these critics, just Google them.
