THE 5 STAR RATING SYSTEM
The focus in RJs judgement is primarily on the producer's current portfolio. The first exposed stars thus judge only the wines in question, while the stars in parentheses are an assessment by the producer with the historical backpack baked in. I use a scale from 1 to 5 stars for the very main producers in the area. RJs subjective assessment of the individual wines is based on serious tastings of more than 12,000 different champagnes and is thus by far the most comprehensive evaluation ever made of champagne.
