Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW’s tenure in review

One of the most prominent critics in wine today, Perrotti-Brown joined The Wine Advocate in 2008 and has been its Editor-in-Chief since 2013. In 2018, she took over Robert Parker’s spot reviewing all Bordeaux wines.
During her time at the publication, Perrotti-Brown has awarded 197 wines 100-points. The majority, 121 to be exact, have been from recent vintages (2015 onwards).
Her focus on the US has also led her to award 134 perfect scores to Californian wines, compared with 51 from Bordeaux and 11 from South Australia.

Californian wines lead perfect score tally

As previously explored, California is the region that has the most 100-point scores awarded in 2021 from all major critics.
Perrotti-Brown’s favourite Bordeaux wines
When looking at her Bordeaux scores by vintage, the 2009 leads with 12 100-point wines. On a brand level, Château Pétrus and Château Cheval Blanc stand out. Cheval Blanc received five 100-points from the critic for its 1998, 2009, 2010, 2015 and 2016. Petrus achieved the same number of high scores for the 2009, 2010, 2015, 2016 and 2018.
Château Latour has been the top-rated First Growth, with 100-points for its 1982, 2003, 2009, 2010, 2016 and 2018 vintages – though the latter two are yet to be released.
