How are Panel Tasting Judged and Scored?

The Decanter guarantee for Panel Tastings

Our buying guide provides you with trusted, independent, expert recommendations on what to buy, drink and cellar.

Each panel tasting is judged by three experienced tasters chosen for their authority in the category of wine being rated. All wines are tasted blind and are pre-poured for judges in flights of eight
to 10 wines. Our experts taste and score wines individually but then discuss their scores together at the end of each flight. Any wines on which scores are markedly different are retasted; however, judges are under no obligation to amend their scores.

Judges are encouraged to look for typicity in wines, rewarding those that are true to their region. When judging, experts are aware of wine price bands  – under £15, £15-£30 and over £30 – with the aim to recognise and reward quality and value.

The tastings are held in the controlled environment of Decanter’s tasting suite: a plain white room, with natural light and no noise. We limit the number of wines tasted to a manageable level – a maximum of 85 per day – allowing judges to taste more thoroughly and avoid palate fatigue.

Drink-by dates are based on how long it is prudent to keep the wine in question. However, some wines will have a longer ageing capacity if stored in pristine conditions throughout their lifespan.

Scoring system

Tasters rate the wines using the 100-point scoring system. The overall Decanter rating is the average of all three judges’ scores.

The ratings are as follows:

98-100: Exceptional
A great, exceptional and profound wine

95-97: Outstanding
An excellent wine of great complexity and character

90-94: Highly Recommended
A very accomplished wine, with impressive complexity

86-89: Recommended
A well-made, straightforward and enjoyable wine
