This year marks the 25th anniversary of our Top 100 list, where Wine Spectator’s editors select and highlight the most exciting wines from the thousands we reviewed during the course of the year.

Back in 1988, the wine world was much smaller. We reviewed about 3,000 newly released wines in our blind tastings, and the Top 100 skewed to France, Italy and California. In 2013, our editors reviewed more than 20,000 new releases, and the Top 100 includes wines from 13 foreign countries and four states.

As always, we select the Top 100 based on quality (represented by score), value (reflected by release price), availability (based on the number of cases either made or imported into the United States) and an “X-factor” we call excitement. However, this year, we have given more emphasis than ever before to the X-factor—the intensity of interest the wines excited by way of their singularity or authenticity.

94 Points #58 Top 100 of 2017 Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A beautiful wine, with dark fig, warm boysenberry reduction and alluring creamed raspberry flavors streaming forth, accented by graphite, black tea and pastis. There's a healthy dose of singed apple wood through the finish, but it's well-embedded as everything pulls together. Best from 2020 through 2040. 5,500 cases made." -JM (Nov 2017)

94 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Inviting, with a whiff of macadamia nut out front, followed by heather, yellow apple, anise and Cavaillon melon flavors. A light kiss of brioche on the finish is deftly done. Clairette, Roussanne, Bourboulenc and Grenache Blanc. Drink now through 2022. 900 cases made." – JM (Nov 15, 2018)

98 Points - James Suckling:
"Purity and brilliance on the nose with so much currant and flower character. Roses, currant bush and fresh leaves, too. Brightness is the word that comes to mind. Full-bodied and broad-shouldered. Juicy and so gorgeous now. Balance is so wonderful here. All about harmonious fruit and tannin balance. I like it slightly better than the excellent 2014. 81% cabernet sauvignon, 4% petit verdot, 7% cabernet franc, 6% merlot and 2% malbec. Drink or hold." - (July 7, 2018)

92 Points - James Suckling:
"Aromas and flavors of dark fruit, mint and toasted oak. A little too much new wood. But the palate is compelling with a pretty depth of fruit and intensity. Better in 2019." - (May 29, 2017)

96 Points Cellar Selection - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"A benchmark for Alsace Riesling, Cuvée Frédéric Emile is released only as it approaches maturity, and this 2009 is just getting there now. With kerosene aromas and tight, intensely zesty and mineral flavors, it shows the Trimbach approach—that Riesling needs to be bone dry. It's impressive now, but will be even better from 2016." - Roger Voss (12/31/2014)
