Chateau Musar for both!

edit: I wanted to check what Cellartracker tells me of my favorite producers. Out of my +7000 TNs, this would be my list based on the producers' scores, excluding those producers with only a handful of tasting notes. Some surprising names here.

Red: Girolamo Dorigo
White: Borgo del Tiglio
Rosé: Valentini
Sweet: Alois Kracher
Fortified: Massandra
Sparkling: Recaredo
Beer: Cantillon
valentini is CERASUOLO D'ABRUZZO, not rosè ;-)

Interesting. Two people whose palates I very much respect who love Bordeaux have said Vieux Chateau Certan. I will have to keep this in mind. [thankyou.gif]

Favorite producer is Peter Michael.
They have it all. Pinot, Chardonnay,Bordeaux blend, white blend and they are all terrific!
Based on this logic, Ridge wins easily for me. And indeed, adding up all the various bottlings in my cellar from a given producer, Ridge is my largest holding by a good margin.
For the Francophiles, Baudry fits that bill. A couple of whites, a Rose, two basis cuvees and three premium cuvees. Too bad their Franc de Pied died. Everything top notch in most vintages, and affordable.
If I had to pick one winery for red and white, I might pick Drouhin (or maybe Bouchard). Then, again, how about Haut Brion or Domaine de Chevalier (or even Ramonet).

Well, Ridge also makes a number of sensational dessert wines (even fortified ones from time to time in the past at least), a delicious rose, and all manner of reds. I think they’re only missing a bubbly.

Well heck, Howard, I’d pick Haut Brion for both if I could afford that luxury product! I have to go country bumpkin.

Curious, have you had much VCC?

I must confess I have done a couple of verticals, and for me, this continues to be one of the best Pomerols. In fact, since 2005, it has for me, overtaken Trotanoy, and lies a close second with Lafleur to Pétrus; a very close second. The wines have a mid-palate lift to them lately that gives incredible lift and freshness, even in the ripe vintages.

As an elite Bordeaux, despite increasing prices, it is still relatively inexpensive.

Yes I know.

But with Petrus at $3k and Lafleur at $1500, at around the same quality level, the VCC is relatively inexpensive.

Such an interesting list of wines - and definitely not what the 'average' drinker would say, right?

I'd be curious to ask the same question of 'average' drinkers and may do this on social media to 'compare and contrast'.

Cheers!
ill save you the time larry.

red: the prisoner
white: rombauer

j/k

i hope you are well my man.

cheers!
This is probably a more accurate guess than any of us would like to admit.

For me I put SQN as both my favorite red and favorite white.
