Majestic Unveils Top Rated Wines Of 2019

Using a simple ‘Buy It Again’ rating metric, Majestic gather thousands of customer reviews every year. This creates a library of public opinion – with wines which score particularly well becoming subject to extra promotional activity.

The top rated wines every year are then put to an overall customer vote – with over 200,000 participants asked to take part.

In what is becoming something of an annual event, Majestic have this week released the details of the wines which scored big across 2019. Each category has been put under intense scrutiny – with a mixture of reds, whites and fizz all under consideration. The winning wines for each category can now be purchased with up to 33% off, when you Mix Six.

This year’s winners were…

Marcelo Pelleriti is the first ever South American producer to score a perfect 100 Parker Point score. His clarets have scored higher than the priciest châteaux of Bordeaux. He’s returned to Mendoza to craft this black-fruit-packed Malbec exclusively for Majestic customers. And this time he’s proud enough to put his own name on it!

Viognier is a notoriously troublesome grape to grow. It demands vast sunlight and bundles of soil nourishment. In the quest for the perfect Viognier breeding ground, they embarked upon the Languedoc’s Hérault Valley that is blessed with long, warm days and cooling Mediterranean breezes. Judging by their critical praise, gold medal from the Decanter World Wine Awards and glittering 100% ‘Buy It Again’ rating, it’s truly paid off!

The DOCG-certified Gavi region’s regulations ensure that its outstanding wines adhere to age-old excellence. This has set the bar high, and popularity often means soaring costs. Put your Gavi choice in the safe hands of the La Toledana estate – its history stretches back to the 16th century and it’s run today by Gavi-experts, the Lecari and Cambiaso families. Gavi La Toledana boasts an impressive 89% ‘Buy It Again’ rating amongst Majestic customers – firmly establishing it as a true white wine favourite.

A delicate balancing act is the secret behind the success of this popular white. Comprised of fruit from both the Wairau and Awatere Valleys, it’s both vibrant and tropical but also possesses a crisp acidity and distinct minerality. The resulting wine is a textbook Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with a 93% Rating.

The overall winner, however, was…

Alongside its 94% ‘Buy It Again’ rating, Laurent-Perrier La Cuvée was voted ‘Best Sparkling Wine of 2019’ by Majestic customers. We think it’s right up your street. Only the finest grapes are selected from 100 Cru vineyards. An incredible 55% of the blend is Chardonnay. An excellent introduction to Laurent-Perrier’s Chardonnay dominated house style – the result is an aromatic and fresh fizz with excellent ageing ability.
