Thankfully, as the wine landscape has evolved, a vast array of ageable wines have burst into the market. There’s finally access, as well as affordability, that was never there before. Our annual Top 100 Cellar Selections list on page 42 speaks to the exciting diversity in styles, prices and regions now awaiting everyone from the first-time collector to the seasoned buyer.
