What does Andreas Larsson’s score reveal about your wine?
TASTED 100% BLIND and Andreas Larsson are working together since November 2011. After six years, more than 20 180 wines have been tasted under blind conditions. Here below Andreas Larsson shares his method of scoring wines: “Evaluate a wine is something very subjective and, every palate is different. Perfection is something very personal, that’s why I rarely give a 100 Point score. And in the end the comment is more important. That’s also the reason I like to follow a wine several times, particularly during its first 2-3 years when it often changes the most and the consumer needs guidance.”
So what does Andreas Larsson’s score reveal about your wine quality?
From 80 to 84 it is a simple wine, without complexity with pure fruit, lighter structure and occasionally some small imperfections.
85 to 88 it is a good to very good wine with some character and occasionally complexity.
89 to 92 it is a very good to outstanding wine generally complex, structured and age worthy with a lot of character and terroir expression.
93 to 96 it is an outstanding to world class wine which possesses complexity, nuance, terroir expression, age worthiness, concentration and length.
97-100 means that´s one of the great wine of the world – unique and personal with all of the above-mentioned qualities in terms of complexity, density, concentration, length and age worthiness but also unique personality, maturity or potential for incredibly long ageing to become something extremely unique.
