Looking through the list, I was absolutly stunned not to see the 2007 Myrat - Sauternes anywhere on the list. WS's tasting note for this wine does not give production numbers, but with a score of 96 and a release price of $36, I am totally confused about its absence.
This wine was readily available in the L.A. area for many months post-WS score for $19/half. I did buy a bottle of this wine based on the 96 and the cheap price of admission: I went into that bottling with the belief that its score was likely inflated a few points. After tasting, I was wondering if JS didn't under-score it by a point. It's an absolutely fantastic wine, and I have to wonder if JS's absence at the Top 100 round-table was the reason this gem of a wine was not mentioned in the Top 100.
So, what other qualifiers were snubbed?
