2014 Le Pergole Torte was pretty good tonight. Could've been the third round of the Masters too.

1990 DRC La Tache
I was lucky enough to taste this great wine at the domain a few years ago. It followed a splendid La Tâche 1999.
Both amazing wines!

It’s been a relatively slow 1st Qtr+ wine-wise in 2019 (as I’ve been exploring Irish whiskies); but, if I had to choose 5 (all my bottles, opened with meals):

Krug NV 163 Ed.
2002 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne
2001 Jaboulet Hermitage La Chapelle
1999 Pétrus
2012 Biondi Santi Rosato (been drinking a lot of this lately as it’s summer in my neck of the woods).

2014 Myriad Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard 'Elysian'
2015 B Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard

Both pretty amazing. Elysian drinking great, the BC TK also great but should improve with some time.

Enjoyed two of them last night but here's a few:

White:
Ravines 2016 Dry Riesling
Mari 2016 Semi-Dry Scriptorium Riesling
Bussy 2017 1er 'Vaillons'

Red:
Ch Font Du Loup 2016 CdP Rouge
Ch de Saint Cosme 2015 Saint Joseph
Bedrock 2017 Papera Ranch


So far these have all been excellent, but none have served as a "I can't believe I'm drinking this right now" moment quite yet. Lots of time left in the year!

2003 Rudolf Fürst Centgrafenberg Frühburgunder "R"

This was amazing and it's no where near their top bottling.

By my quick count, Laurent, that's +/- 33 "best" wines of the year so far for you in 2019, and it's only late April!

Last night, I had two of the most beautiful, memorable, and impressive wines I've ever had:
1996 Giacosa Asili Riserva
1996 Salon

Number 1 and 2 for best wines of the year so far. The Asili probably takes the crown of best wine experience ever so far... flirtysmile

I hope there will be many others, Brandon ... I taste about 2000 wines per year ... (and I am lucky enough to share great cellars with good friends) :-)

Last night a 2014 Jouan Chambolle Musigny VV pretty much stopped me in my tracks. The aromatics were stunning, the palate elegant and persistent.

Thanks. That’s interesting as I usually just ordered Aux Echezeaux, MSD, Clos Sorbe, and CSD during EP, will look for this in the future.

So far this year, my best has easily been 2016 A.P. Vin The Trick Bien Nacido Z block syrah. In a class by itself.
I Pobega'd a bottle, and immediately bought more.

2001 Dönnhoff Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel - had this with a local German winemaker and made his day

2014 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave St. Joseph - It might be infanticide, but I loved this and it kept me occupied for the better part of an afternoon

2016 Azienda Agricola Ricci Colli Tortonesi "Terre Del Timorasso" - Had this with some Carbonara at a local italian restaurant, cool producer of this variety doing pretty awesome things

2017 Merry Edwards Sauvignon Blanc - So good and my GF loved it (sometimes the small battles win the war)

Celebrating my daughter’s move to LA, we drank several of her birth year wines, the best of which was a super 1992 Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon... and digging for it in the cellar unearthed two hidden bottles of 92 Dominus which will be opened in the future!

Got to update this with a few bottles from last week:

1973 Krug, which was outstanding.
1970 Figeac, a savoury ambrosia.
1959 Moulin Touchais, a stunning ageless wine, served after
1988 Mas de Daumas Gassac Blanc, which also blew me away.
1997 Jean-Marc Millot Grands Echezeaux, in a beautiful spot right now.

...but the WOTY so far still has to be the Belgrave 1945 - just spellbinding.

Not as enthousiast about the 1998, great but not as perfect.

I suspect you might had a somewhat fresher/better stored bottle, but it truly was a lovely wine. The '98 could still age further, imho.

Joshua,

The Cheval-Blanc 1998 might be better now, after 5 more years of cellaring ...

In my pantheon : Cheval-Blanc 1982 (twice)

5 juin 2006 :
Saint-Emilion – Château Cheval-Blanc 1982 : report by Pascal Perez
LG20 – PP19,5
Olfaction envoûtante, toute en subtilité, d’une grande distinction, mêlant fraise des bois, violette, cerise, feuilles séchées, havane et truffe.
Nous abordons ici une toute autre expression du vin d’exception. Son évidence confondante, sa rectitude, son profil extrêmement allongé et ses tannins aériens en font un parangon d’élégance. Il développe un rapport puissance/finesse idéal. Evidemment peu en reste gustativement, il délivre des notes fondues d’essence de fruit (fraise) et de violette, de minéralité, de tabac et de cuir noble. Le rare plaisir de la perfection.

In the same dinner : Château Margaux 1990 : 19/20


16 avril 2005 :
Cheval-Blanc 1982 : 20/20
Perfection made wine ...

In the same dinner : Roumier Musigny 1990 : 19/20

I have always been confused over this question/thread idea -

If you purchased a case of 1900 Margaux in perfect condition, and had one bottle per year, would that be your #1 Wine of the Year for the next ten years?

Shouldn't this category be 'the finest wines' released in 2019?

That would be in inherently limiting because many of us don't drink much wine in the same year it's released. Don't overthink it: what wine, that you opened in 2019, has really rocked your world?

Over the last two evenings I have had stunning bottles of 1975 Latour and 2003 Mugneret-Gibourg Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Les Feusselottes.

Hands down 2016 Macdonald Cabernet Sauvignon. Perhaps the best wine I have ever tasted (in my limited experience).
