Jancis Robinson (1950-present), OBE MW, is a British wine writer, journalist, and television presenter. Ms. Robinson is the author of twenty-nine books and hundreds of articles. Among her books are The 24-Hour Wine Expert (2016), How to Taste/Jancis Robinson's Wine Tasting Workbook (2002 and 2008), Tasting Pleasure/Confessions of a Wine Lover (1997), Jancis Robinson's Wine Course (1995 and 2003), Vines, Grapes & Wines (1986), Masterglass (1983), and The Wine Book (1979). She is editor of The Oxford Companion to Wine, co-author with Hugh Johnson of The World Atlas of Wine, and co-author of Wine Grapes: A complete guide to 1,368 vine varieties, including their origins and flavours. Her television work includes, among others, "The Wine Programme" (1983-1986), which was the world's first television series about wine; "Matters of Taste" (1988 and 1991); "Vintners' Tales" (1992 and 1998); "Jancis Robinson's Wine Course" (1995, with accompanying book); and "Taste with Jancis Robinson" (1999).

Series 2 Tasting Notes 1975-2014

Physical Description: 16.6 linear feet

Scope and Contents

The tasting notes in this collection are brief impressions recorded by Ms. Robinson for her own use. Many of the entries have a directional arrow denoting the point in the bottle's lifecycle: an upward-pointing arrow for "will improve", a horizontal arrow for "good", and a downward-pointing arrow for "going past".
Wines are given a number on the 20-point scale outlined at JancisRobinson.com: http://www.jancisrobinson.com/how-we-score. (Accessed 24 April 2017). Briefly, a wine marked "20" is considered "truly exceptional", one marked "15" is "average", and one marked "12" is "faulty or unbalanced".
Many of the abbreviations Ms. Robinson uses in her tasting notes are also listed at JancisRobinson.com. Some common abbreviations:
GD: good
LT: light
OPP: opposite
QG: quite good
SL: slight
TA: total acidity
VA: volatile acidity
VG: very good
W: with
Ms. Robinson kindly transcribed a sample page of tasting notes, which is located in Box 5, Folder 2 along with the 1991 Bollinger Desk Diary.
