1. 1996 Poniatowski Aigle Blanc Vouvray - God bless Chenin Blanc, the value of long lived whites. 2. 1998 Domaine Vincent Girardin Savigny-Les-Beaune "Les Vermots Dessus" - the white Burgundy all California Chards aspire to be. 3. 2000 Chateau Palmer, Margaux - "only" 96 points from RP, but can I wait until 2008+? 4. 2001 Clarendon Hills "Brookman Vineyard" Syrah - A RP 94, and based on the first 2 bottles, this one is ready to be drunk now, as well as later. Stunning Aussie Shiraz, made the Old World way. 5. 2001 Henry's Drive Reserve Shiraz Padthaway - another 96 pointer from RP. Made by winemakers Sarah and Sparky Marquis (of Marquis-Phillips fame) - hint, Baby ChickPea - pass on by this BIG wine. 6. Warre's 1977 Vintage Port (made when I was 13). Still youthful as a 28 year old. And what are YOU drinking at your abode?
