This section contains selections of the best wines of 2015 as chosen by Decanter experts.

Below, you can fine the first wines in a new collection named top wines of 2015: Decanter star buys. All the wines chosen were originally rated as ‘outstanding’ – or at least 95 points – in expert tastings during 2015, including the panel tastings and weekday wines sections of Decanter magazine.

You can also see the favourite wines of 2015 chosen by Decanter contributors, as well as Decanter staff & columnists, plus Decanter contributing editors and Decanter awards judges, published to celebrate Decanter’s 40th anniversary.

Coming soon: More Decanter star buys of 2015, plus Steven Spurrier’s best wines of 2015 – as featured in his monthly Decanter magazine column.
