Top 100 Best Buys of 2010

The finest value-priced wines of the year.


Published:

At the end of the year we tend to count our blessings and take a minute to appreciate the good things in our lives. Family, friends and health deservedly come first, but somewhere near the top of any wine devotee’s list has to be the increasing quality of wine, available at prices that make regular enjoyment affordable. We can cite any number of reasons for this, from increased competition to greater attention to detail in the vineyards and winery, but why ask why? Let’s just whisper thanks and review the 100 wines that Wine Enthusiast’s tasting panelists felt offered the highest quality for the price in 2010. If a wine’s score on the Wine Enthusiast 100-point scale is high in relation to its price (a very precise formula we keep to ourselves, but 88-points and $10 are approximate yardsticks), it merits a Best Buy designation. Only about 5 percent of the wines we review annually merit this designation, and what you’re seeing here is a very elite grouping drawn from that already limited group. Enjoy, shop wisely, drink well, give thanks. For the 100 Best Buys of 2010, click here.
