If a 100-point scale assumes the entire universe of wine, where 100 points represents the very best wine ever produced, using such a system for value-priced wines will be of limited utility.
Consequently, we have developed a simple star rating system that, when combined with our narrative review, should provide sufficient guidance. Here’s the methodology:
No stars = not worth buying
One star = worth buying (a drinkable wine at a fair price)
Two stars = worth buying and a good value (you would typically pay more for a wine of this quality)
Three stars = worth buying and a great value (you would typically pay much more for a wine of this quality)
