Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines

Wine Spectator Magazine has published its Top 100 Wines list every year since 1988. Its influence is substantial; many wines that feature highly in the list sell quickly in following months, often at increased prices.

2020 Top 100 Wines

For the third year in a row, a widely known European wine took top honors, with the 2010 Murrieta Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial taking up the mantle from the 2016 LĂ©oville-Barton and 2015 Sassicaia, the 2019 and 2018 victors.

As a traditional, late-released Gran Reserva, this 2010 bottling is much older than most of the wines in this edition (there is one 2009 to find). 77 out of the 100 come from the 2018, 2017 and 2016 vintages.

This #1 ranking may lead to an increase in the average price of the wine (as it has done for previous list-toppers). Click on the link for the Gran Reserva Especial in the list below to check prices and availability.
