Impossible to pick just one...however for Charlie I will.

The 1950 Charles Krug from perfect provenance drank in Napa with a group of the most exciting next generation winemakers who look back to wines like these as inspiration.

Such a tough choice as I drank so well this year but if there's one wine that keeps haunting me it is definitely the 1998 Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco Riserva Santo Stefano. Hat tip to the 1982 Stony Hill Gewurtz and 1961 Clos de Tart as very close seconds.

There have been a few mostly French, but I will go with what was the most surprising and delicious:
2003 Jaffurs Melville Syrah.

Easy for me. 1955 Roumier Bonnes Mares. Served single blind (ie vintage blind) and I relatively quickly declared it wine of the night for me. Once revealed as the 1955, which is my birth year, I was doubly happy.

In the other thread, I listed a number of great wines I have had this year. I have been very lucky. But, even without looking at this list one wine stood out for me. 2010 Reinhold Haart Piesporter Goldtropfen Gold Capsule Auslese.

It might be my last one: 2007 Maybach Materium last night. An utterly riveting wine. Right up there might be the 2000 Giacosa Barolo Riserva Le Rocche del Falletto I had for my 50th birthday. I'm sure it will be better in 15-20 years, but it was still magical.

Two top contenders- to break the tie I went with the one that is fully mature versus the one that is close, but has not yet fully revealed itself.

Appreciate the usefulness of having this separate one-only thread, Charlie, thanks. Will still cross-pollinate any results here with my other overall thread. As indicated in my listing, the 2015 Meo Camuzet Corton Charlie ends up as the winner for this past year, with some close competition from the 95 Monfortino. The 2001 D'Yquem was the best wine, but I don't count previous WOTY winners when doing this exercise

Salud,

1962 Ch. Guiraud. Not sure it was objectively the best but it was delicious, a birthyear wine, and I had some leftovers for 2019!

1947 Musigny from Faiveley. Drink with two of my best friends over a long and lazy dinner at my house in Provence. It doesn’t get much better.... perhaps if the bottle had been a magnum !

As great a wine year as 2018 was, one wine absolutely floored me. And not for the first time. Jay Miller was there with me and two others at Cafe Loup, including the gentleman that brought the bottle.

2010 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Cuvée Roussanne Vieilles Vignes. Discovered more of northern and southern white rhones to my liking.
If you are liking N. Rhone whites check out Chapoutier St. Joseph Blanc Les Granits. It's one of the over-performing whites of the region at a really great price if you pre-buy it.
Thanks Kirk. I see the 17 over at K&L.

Herwig,

Cathelin 1991 is one of the best wines I had in my life (that was at the domain).

For 2018, I would say that the greatest wine was DRC St-Vivant 2007.

That's a pretty good price. It usually will go up or above $100 on release...or it has in past vintages. Grand Vin has it for $10 less then K&L

That makes me a bit happy this morning - I went deep on 2014 Carillon (though haven’t opened any Champs Canet yet) and my bottle of 88 Krug will be opened for my 40th this year. [cheers.gif]

I cannot imagine being unhappy going deep on any 2014 white Burgundy from a top producer. At least at this stage (we will see about premox), the best vintage of white Burgundy I have ever had.

This makes me feel old. I vividly recall an ITB friend inviting me to join him at a Symington trade tasting presenting the just released 1991 ports along with some older wines they were releasing at the same time. The 1991 declaration was a big deal as there had not been a declared vintage since 1985. I was probably about 23 and it was my real introduction to port. The Dow was my favorite of the 1991s and I still have some left that I purchased on release. Based on your note, I need to revisit one soon.

I haven't had the opportunity to taste any DOW's that are older than this one, but I'm sure they are also delicious. I remember this one showing very little tertiary components at all, which is probably why I enjoyed it so much.

I remember that too. I was young and ITB and took my dad with me down to DC. It was in a lovely building off of Dupont Circle. Talked with Danny Haas for a long time at that one, although I can't remember if they represented any ports or why he would otherwise have been there.

I haven't had the opportunity to taste any DOW's that are older than this one, but I'm sure they are also delicious. I remember this one showing very little tertiary components at all, which is probably why I enjoyed it so much.
The 1983 is very good if you get the chance. And pretty cheap for what's in the bottle.
ITB-ish.

I recently tasted great Dow's :
Dow's 2003
Dow's 1985
Dow's 1983
Dow's Tawny 30 years

Dow's Quinta do Bomfim 2005 and Dow's Senhora da Ribeira 199 are both very interesting.

Red: 1982 Mouton
White: 2014 Jacques Carillon Puligny Montrachet Les Champs Canet
Sweet: 1988 Yquem
Sparkling: 1988 Krug
Fortified: 1977 Taylor Port

Forced to pick one: 1988 Yquem
That makes me a bit happy this morning - I went deep on 2014 Carillon (though haven’t opened any Champs Canet yet) and my bottle of 88 Krug will be opened for my 40th this year. [cheers.gif]
I cannot imagine being unhappy going deep on any 2014 white Burgundy from a top producer. At least at this stage (we will see about premox), the best vintage of white Burgundy I have ever had.
2014 is the most white burgundy I’ve ever bought (by far), so I’m in full agreement; just haven’t had any of Carillon’s 1er crus yet.

The Carillon was a gift. I quit white Burgs in the late '90s for the obvious reason. This bottle is a Siren song, but I haven’t broken yet.
