One of the more common complaints I hear from friends about Wine Spectator is that it’s difficult to find highly rated wines the publication recommends. It can be tedious keeping up with for sure so we’ve got to help each other out. Here’s one you can act on right now.
When you have a Wine Spectator online subscription, you also gain early access to their ratings through their Insider
newsletters. These can give you a little bit of a head start in some situations.
Last week’s Insider featured a sneak peak of ratings from the highly anticipated 2010 Rhones. My eyes were drawn to the big numbers for St. Prefert CdPs. But my pal @EvanDawson
spotted an incredible QPR hiding behind the Chateauneufs: The 2010 Chateau de Saint Cosme Gigondas
With a score of 95 points, a release price of $41, and ample 3,300 case production – this is a fantastic quality-price ratio wine you can find at retail.
Click here to buy it now from Wine.com and stack it with code “10PER6″ for 10% off 6 or more mixed bottles. And if you’re not a Steward Ship member and haven’t ordered from Wine.com before use “1CENTWELCOME” for $0.01 shipping on orders of $75 or more.
In the Boston area Blanchard’s has it for $34.99 and eligible for discounts. Other MA retailers have it for a little more – check Wine-Searcher.com. Or search nationally.
Thanks for the heads up Evan! I ordered a bottle and will let you know how it goes when I taste it.
