Who Is James?
James Suckling is one of today’s leading global wine critics, whose views are read and respected by wine lovers, serious wine collectors, and the wine trade worldwide. Suckling spent nearly 30 years as Senior Editor and European Bureau Chief of The Wine Spectator, and as European Editor of Cigar Aficionado. On his departure from the magazines, Forbes called the Los Angeles-born writer “one of the world’s most powerful wine critics.”

In late 2010, Suckling launched JamesSuckling.com, a site that evolved from him seeing a need for wine to be communicated in a more modern way. The site offers subscribers high-definition video content hosted by Suckling that reports on and rates the best wines from around the world... The site attracts viewers from over 110 countries, with the largest audiences in North America, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, Australia, Italy, and France.


How did he pick 100 from the thousands of wine tasted...?
“My colleague Nick Stock and I posted more than 10,000 tasting notes on JamesSuckling.com in the past year; with all the great wines among them, it was difficult to pick the best. The Top 100 Wines of 2014 below are based primarily on ratings. I considered all wines that scored 96 points or more during the past 11 months, and that had at least 6,000 bottles in production. Finally, I ordered the wines according to what I thought were the most exciting: the ones with the wow factor...” – James Suckling

My truffle hunting wine acquisition team is out there trying to lock down new wines from this TOP 100 list daily. My advice is always the same every year when these lists come out... ACT QUICKLY WHEN YOU SEE SOMETHING YOU LIKE! Many of these wines are sure to sell out quickly so make sure you have locked in on the TOP 1% of tasted wines by James and his team for 2014.

Let the fun begin!!

All My Best,
Andrew
