top 100 archives

Each year, Wine Spectator editors survey the wines reviewed over the previous 12 months and select our Top 100, based on quality, value, availability and excitement.

Our archives contain every Top 100 list back to the debut year, 1988. You may choose a specific year and sort the list by clicking on its header: rank, wine, score or price.

You can also view this list on Wine Spectator Mobile. And don't miss the details and videos on the Top 10 Wines of 2012 in our free-access section, plus a PDF of all Top 100.

(* In 1998, some wines share the same rank, as the list was divided into top reds, whites and dessert wines.)

2014 | 2013 | 2012 | 2011 | 2010 | 2009 | 2008 | 2007 | 2006 | 2005 | 2004 | 2003 | 2002 | 2001 | 2000 | 1999 | 1998 | 1997 | 1996 | 1995 | 1994 | 1993 | 1992 | 1991 | 1990 | 1989 | 1988 |
