Vintage Ratings

It must be remembered that Port Houses can make Vintage Port without ‘declaring’ the year. That is why the number of ‘declared houses’ often is mentioned with different figures from different sources.

We have following classification of the vintage years:

  • Very poor
  • Poor
  • Fair
  • Below average
  • Average
  • Good
  • Very Good
  • Excellent
  • Outstanding
  • Classic
  • Explanations for the columns in the table below:

  • Michael Broadbent's rating is on a scale from 1-5
  • James Suckling's scale is up to 100
  • The source for number of 'Declared houses' is statistics from IVDP
  • 'Known brands' is the number of brands we know of that has been made in each vintage
  • Select a vintage to show tasting notes
