Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2007

Each year, Wine Spectator editors survey the wines we've reviewed over the past 12 months and select the most exciting for our Top 100.

In 2007, we reviewed more than 15,000 wines from around the world in blind tastings. More than 3,500 of them earned outstanding ratings (90 points or higher on our 100-point scale). We then narrowed the list down based on four criteria: quality (represented by score); value (reflected by release price); availability (measured by case production or cases imported); and an X-factor we call excitement. But no equation determines the final selections: These choices reflect our editors' judgment and enthusiasm about the wines we tasted.

Thirteen countries are represented in our 2007 list, tying it with 2006 for the most diverse group in the history of the Top 100, which debuted in 1988. The average price for the wines on this year's list is $42, down from $49 last year, yet quality remains at the same level, with an average score of 93 points. We hope our selections stimulate discussion, and lead people to more deeply explore the world of wine.
