The top 10 wines 2018 (01-12-2018 by Nenad Jelisic and Robert Jonasson)
This is the sixth consecutive year that NJ Wines presents the top 10 wines. In 2018, NJ Wines tasted a few thousand wines available on the wine market. From all these wines, NJ Wines selected the top 10 wines. The most important criterion for the selection was, of course, the quality of the wines, but also the availability of the wines today. Among the top 10 wines 2018 there are three wines from France, two wines from USA, one wine from Austria, one wine from South Africa, one wine from Portugal, one wine from Italy and one wine from Germany. This year, France proved with the second-best wine of the year, the fourth-best wine of the year and the sixth-best wine of the year that it absolutely belongs to one of the world's best wine-producing countries. This is the first time that NJ Wines gave 5,0 of 5,0 NJP (100 of 100 points) to six wines in one and the same year (Note that our wine tasting year always begins the first week of December the year before and ends the first week of December the current year, i.e. for the year 2018, it began the first week of December 2017 and ended the first week of December 2018). In the year 2017, no wine got 5,0 NJP and in the year 2016, one wine got 5,0 NJP, etc. We are very excited about the very positive result, but we do not think that the global quality of the wines has changed so much in the positive direction as our tasting result shows. We were just lucky to try some of the world's best wines in 2018.
