Reply to "What are "your" 100 point wines?"

I have never had a wine I would rate above 98 points. And the wines I would rate the highest are not necessarily my favorite ones.  A partial list of the wines I would rate highest includes one bottle of:

1992 Dalla Valle Maya

1982 Pichon-Lalande

1959 Latour

1986 Krug Clos de Mesnil (magnum)

1998 F.X. Pichler Riesling Unendlich

1998 Chapoutier Ermitage Le Pavillon

A partial list of my favorite wines includes one bottle from the last 3 of that list plus one bottle of:

1991 DRC La Tache

1997 DRC La Tache

2001 Giacomo Conterno Monfortino

Several of the wines I have listed I’ve had more than once. None of them have been equally fabulous every time.
