Robert Parker has updated his celebrated vintage chart for the Year 2002. It should serve as a general guide to wines from around the world for the best vintages of the past thirty years. The unique color coding system provides a quick summary of the regional quality of each vintage. Parker also provides a regional numeric rating for each vintage as well as the drinking status at present (the letter codes next to the numeric rating). A key to the chart is provided at the bottom. Please note: This chart includes the years 1971 &1976 from an older version. These years were not included in the chart as published in Issue 141 of the Wine Advocate.
