2015 Vintage Chart and Wine Guide

The ultimate reference tool for the world's major winegrowing regions.

Is the wine you’d like to see a rating of not among the more than 140,000 reviews located in our Buying Guide? (Hey, it happens.) Check our latest vintage chart to get an idea of what to expect. Although our expert reviewers base these ratings and maturity estimates on their vast tasting experience and interviews with local winemakers, we can’t guarantee every wine will live up or down to the broad generalizations the ratings on the vintage chart represent—in the world of wine, there are exceptions to every rule. Maturity estimates assume proper storage conditions over the life of the wine; the rule of caveat emptor applies.
