Over the past 35 years Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate has become the world's most trusted and influential wine guide for consumers. Implemeting the 100-point rating system, Parker and his team classify the best wines they encounter as:
90-95 an outstanding wine of exceptional complexity and character. In short, these are terrific wines.
96-100 an extraordinary wine of profound and complex character displaying all the attributes expected of a classic wine of its variety. Wines of this caliber are worth a special effort to find, purchase, and consume.
There are very few wines with a perfect 100 score, however we have put together an all-star lineup of exclusive icons from around the world, all of which have scored 100 points by Robert Parker and his team at The Wine Advocate.
One of Parker's most trusted and accomplished critics, Neal Martin will be leading this exceptional masterclass and sharing his insights and experience from The Wine Advocate.
