I made the mistake of checking cellartracker....

1988 Ducru Beacaillou

1990 Monsanto Il Poggio

1988 Canalicchio di Sopra Le Gode de Montosoli

2001 Jean-Luc Colombo Les Terres Brulees

2003 Eric Texier Cote Rotie VV

1995 Manzone le Gramolere

1997 Rampolla Sammarco

1998 Fuligni

2000 Lisini

1980 Mastroberadino Taurasi Riserva

1996 Chapoutier les granits blanc

1989 Chapoutier Chante-Alouette blanc

the list keeps going.....  too many tears on my keyboard to continue.  Even though most of these are auction bottles above, there are a few that i bought direct from winery or on release that were corked like an '01 Alion.  As Sunny notes, and has been echoed for years, provenance is everything.

Wow!  Lucky though that none of your California or vintage port bottles were off!
