Reply to "Your 2019 WOTY"

As in years past, this thread should be titled WsOTY.  Make a decision people!  You can't have 47 wines of the year!  

For me, and mostly due to the people/circumstances surrounding their consumption:

White:

1991 Lopez de Heredia Gran Reserva Gran Reserva Blanco VT

Stunning, served with a roasted butternut squash soup.  Best pairing of the year.

Champagne:

2006 Taittinger Comptes de Champagne

Enjoyed this Champagne at least a half dozen times this year.  Always made me think that it was better than the last one I had.  Beautiful wine, and right in the zone for me.

Red:

1995 Rene Rostaing Cote Rotie, Cote Blonde

Amazingly young.  Complex, dense and delicious with grilled lamb chop lollypops.

Dessert:

1999 Delesvaux SdGN

Unbelievably complex and a great finishing wine for an evening of good Thai food.  Glad to have a few more!  The tartrate crystals added to the festive atmosphere.

Cheers, and Happy Holidays to all
