What are the Critics' Choice wines? Simple: they're the wines that have our judges running around the tasting floor to offer them to their friends in mid-flight; the wines that stop whole teams in their tracks; the wines that make our judges think 'when I get back to the office, I'm ordering that little beauty'.
