The World of Fine Wine's scores for Bordeaux 2010 have been added to the Liv-ex En Primeur pages, thus concluding this year's chapter of EP tasting notes. Now, with all of the cards on the table, we have a clear idea of the critics' overall response to each wine - as measured by the Liv-ex Total Score (the mean average score of all of the critics surveyed).
Though Margaux was the most highly rated wine in the early stages of critical coverage, the First Growth moved down the rankings after Parker and Ian D'Agata of Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar gave it relatively lack-lustre reviews. Latour now commands the top spot, followed (very closely) by the Right Bank's Petrus.
The table below shows the top ten wines of 2010. To view the full set of scores, please visit the Liv-ex En Priemur Pages.
The Liv-ex Total Score is arguably the best measure of a wine's performance in 2010. It represents the mean average score of the major critics, including Robert Parker, Jancis Robinson, Stephen Tanzer, Decanter, Neal Martin, Wine Spectator and many more.
