The 100 Point Scoring System (from www.robertparker.com):
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.
90 – 95: An outstanding wine of exceptional complexity and character. In short, these are terrific wines.
80 – 89: A barely above average to very good wine displaying various degrees of finesse and flavor as well as character with no noticeable flaws.
70 – 79: An average wine with little distinction except that it is soundly made. In essence, a straightforward, innocuous wine.
60 – 69: A below-average wine containing noticeable deficiencies, such as excessive acidity and/or tannin, an absence of flavor or possibly dirty aromas or flavors.
50 – 59: A wine deemed to be unacceptable.

The cold winter has given me a cold and if I cannot smell I travel through my wine memories. That means it is the perfect time for my wines of 2023 – the good the bad and the ugly. Or rather the wines I remember. 2023 has been a good year for me as I have tasted thousands of wines. On my mission to taste I travelled to California, Georgia, several times to Italy, France and the growing regions of Germany, and, believe it or not England.
There is no chance that I can talk about all these experiences here and I am therefore going to focus on the ones that really stood out – mostly because they were very good. There were many bangers – cult, unicorn wines that are very hard to get – amongst the wines I tased, but I also want to talk about wines that offer great value at affordable prices. This is not all though. At the end I am going to share with you, which wines I am going to drink in 2024.
