Ratings, ratings and more ratings. It seems like everyday the world of wine is consumed with scores. You can’t blame us really as scores do help to sell wines and are especially important to small producers from emerging regions that lack the sales force or marketing dollars to tell their story. Scores also help to guide consumers in choosing wine in the huge offerings widely available especially when in one of the “big boxes”.
I don’t care what any winery/winemaker/vigneron says, when you get a great score you smile and take a certain pleasure from the recognition.
Today, I think Louis’ father, Henri, is smiling for his son and all he has accomplished not only at Château de St. Cosme but also at Forge Cellars.
Well done Louis….it is not everyday you achieve a perfect score from the Wine Advocate.
