JancisRobinson.com's Purple pages

The esteemed British wine writer's website, updated daily, was founded as long ago as 2000. There are thousands of free articles but subscribers to her Purple pages have exclusive online access to the entire Oxford Companion to Wine (rrp $65) and the superb maps of The World Atlas of Wine (rrp $50) as well as her tens of thousands of wine reviews, a particularly friendly and well-informed forum, and insider videos and information on what's happening in the world of wine. Visitors come from more than 100 different countries.

Jancis Robinson was the first person outside the wine trade to pass the notoriously stiff Master of Wine exams. She is wine correspondent of the Financial Times, author of some of the most celebrated reference works on wine, and an award-winning TV presenter.

Burghound.com is the result of a lifelong passion for the wine of Burgundy and is the first publication of its kind to offer specialized, and more importantly, exhaustive coverage of a specific wine region.

Roy Hersh's For The Love of Port

Considered one of the leading Port wine authorities and journalists in the United States, in June 2003, Hersh was one of just two Americans selected by the Port and Douro Wine Institute (IVDP) to be "enthroned" into their "Confraria" (Port wine brotherhood). Following his induction into the Confraria, Roy launched For The Love Of Port, in February of 2004. Three years later, the newsletter now goes to port aficionados in nearly 65 countries with many subscribing to his online database of reviews.

Subscription: $59/year


Richard Juhlin's Champagne Club

The Richard Juhlin Champagne Club is a global source of freshly updated information about the world of champagne. Richard Juhlin's Champagne Guide currently contains reviews and tasting notes for over 5,600 different champagnes, including listings of current and potential points. Author of several of books about champagne and a number of articles for magazines such as Spectacle du Monde, La Revue de Champagne, Wine International, Fine Wine and others, Richard Juhlin holds the world record for tasted champagnes.

Richard Juhlin uses the 100 point scale to rate champagne, but a few factors must be considered to fully appreciate his reviews:
  • The scale starts at 0
  • 50 points is an average mark for Non-Vintage (NV) champagne
  • NV wines rated below 80 - especially those from the fringes of the region - should not be avoided
  • The final score is based on an overall impression of the wine and not a summation of points for different qualities or characteristics
