Choosing the 100 most collectible, age-worthy wines of the year was not exactly a chore. In fact, Wine Enthusiast editors found that picking the Top 100 Cellar Selections this year was a dream job—like creating a restaurant wine list on an unlimited budget. Go for the classic, proven collectibles of Europe and the New World and then sprinkle in some terrific discoveries from around the globe, confident that they will age well and make any wine lover happy.

To be considered for this honor, the wines must have been among the top-rated of those identified already as ageable Cellar Selections by our team of reviewers during the blind tastings they conducted throughout the past 12 months.

We easily found dozens of truly world-class, proven collectibles: the top, heavy-hitting, most consistent, trusted wines of the world, whose track records speak for themselves. These picks, starting with Louis Roederer 2014 Cristal Champagne at No. 1, and the original Super Tuscan, Tenuta San Guido’s Sassicaia at No. 2, represent about two thirds of the 100.

The rest of the list shines a light on age-worthy wines that are not so well-known but deserve to be. Many of these are from newer wineries, lesser-known regions and grape varieties and range in price from as low as $28 to about $100. To be clear, all Top 100 Cellar Selections are good investments in drinking pleasure, no matter what the price.

Stocking stellar wines from our list will guarantee you have something exceptional on hand to drink at that next special occasion, without having to rush out and shop. More importantly, if you can wait to pull the cork until the wine has had time to mature, you will experience a whole new dimension of wine appreciation.

What Is Blind Tasting?

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
