Toplijst Rieslings

Egon Müller: weer aan kop op lijst ‘beste’ Rieslings.


Wine Searcher heeft dit jaar een lijst van top-Rieslings samengesteld waaruit Gunderloch en Prüm zijn verdwenen. Egon Müller blijft onbetwist aan de top.


Wine-Searcher collates scores from a wide range of critics, from influential single palates like Robert Parker and Jancis Robinson to publications like Wine Spectator, all adjusted for the 100-point scale. To generate a wine's aggregate score, Wine-Searcher uses a Bayesian methodology to calculate a weighted average, since not all critics are equal. This score is calculated for specific vintages of a wine, as well as across all vintages.

We measure this score to four decimal places (even though we only display the rounded, two-digit total), so even wines with the same rounded score are in strict order.

It's a different list from last year, but not hugely so. The top three are the same, albeit in a different order, but there are some notable omissions. Gone from the top 10 are the Gunderloch Nackenheimer Rothenberg TBA, the surprise New Zealand entry from last year Framingham's F-Series TBA and, perhaps most surprisingly of all, the Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr TBA, which is the second most expensive Riesling on earth and famously garlanded with critical praise, although not quite enough, it would seem
