Red: Jaffurs
White: Jaffurs
If I had to pick one producer for the rest of my life, it would be Jaffurs. The reds are usually complex and satisfying. The whites, of which I drink little, are also always complex and interesting.

Both are always a good value.

Red: Jacky Truchot. However, while my cellar has a number of bottles of his wine, I am not sure if this counts as he no longer sells wine. If I have to leave him out, I would say Mugneret-Gibourg.

White: Ramonet

Red: Toss up between Produttori and Patricia Green.
White: Keller or Walter Scott

I obviously chose a New and an Old World Favorite for each. Love the balance between deliciousness, reliability, and price point for each of these producers. there is also a list of producers that are close runners ups.

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 : Clos Roche Blanche (gone but not forgotten)
White: pre-2002 Muller Catoir (also gone but not forgotten)
Sparkling: Taittinger (for the CdC)
Rose: Cotat (either one)
Fortified: Gonzalez Byass (for their anadas)

I'm taking price into account here. If I drank Haut Brion more than once a decade or DRC more than once every 2 decades one of them might have made the red slot.

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'.

red: Musar - The wines are so distinctive, so incredibly good, and I can afford to drink them.

Since I have to pick one

Lopez de Heredia: for red and white. Traditional, age worthy, complex, profound, singular, accessible and reasonably priced reds and enchanting, other-wordly, supernatural whites.

Honorable mentions:

Red: Mugneret Gibourg, Bartolo Mascarello
White: Keller, Dauvissat
