Regarding the wines...
Going on pure enjoyment -- not score or how "good" I think they actually are (some consumed only once, some many times, based upon the best bottle):
1999 Billecart-Salmon Cuvee Elisabeth
2002 Taittinger Comtes
2001 G. Conterno Monfortino
2002 G. Conterno Monfortino
2006 Jamet Cote-Rotie
And the overall wine for me would be 1 of 2 Chapoutier Le Pavillon. (But the lesser bottle still would have made this list.
There is one wine scheduled for NYE very unlikely to crack this list, but which does have a non-theoretical shot.
