Bottles that you have in your cellar and that you are keeping for that special occasion.

I guess I'll have to start. My special bottles are:
Sociando-Mallet 89 (bought in the US for 30$!)
Château Clerc-Millon 92,93,94,95,96 (for a vertical tasting)
Clos des Mouches 93
Château Yqem 94 (sadly not a good year, but Yqem is, well, Yqem!)
Le Cigare Volant 2000.

So, what are yours?


Never let the facts get in the way of a good theory.

Vin Jaune : Chateau d'Arlay 1994; Domaine du Tausson 1994 and 1995
("yellow" wine is produced only in the French Jura, and is found only in a very special 62cl bottle. Perfect with comte cheese, nuts, some creamy sauce with morels, and perfect with mild curry chicken too)

Vin de Paille : Domaine du Tausson 1993 and 1994; Chateau d'Arlay 1994
(Vin de paille comes from Jura too. You let dry the fruits 3 to5 month after harvest;of course, you don't have a lot of juice... But suggar concentrates, and you have very sweet wine. Perfect for foie gras, desserts, or just by itself. Available only in 37.5 cl bottles)

Chateau Gruaud Larose 96 (2nd cru classe Bordeaux/St Julien)
Chateau Cos d'Estournel 97 (2nd cru classe Bordeaux/St Estephe)

Of course, for every day, I have more generic Bordeaux, Cotes du Jura (white, rose and red), Reuilly (centre of France), Madiran, Cahors
80% of my wines are red

In Missouri, we have a great dry wine made with a Norton grape. My favorite is a bottle from a winery called Robler. It is a 1998 vintage.

I also have a 1997 bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from another winery called Les Bourgeois.

I am also a port lover. I have a bottle of port from a winery called Hermannhof from 1997.

All of these are sitting quietly in our cellar waiting for that special occasion.

By the way, if anyone is in Missouri, we have about 50 winery's. I have been to most of them!

Rgds,

And when I decided to buy my house, I choose it because of its cellar....
And in my list, for the white wines, I forgot some Gerwurtztraminer "Vendanges tardives" (late harvest?)

I am just a beginner, I decided to drink less beer but more wine. At the moment I am buying different wines to find out the best for me. Today I bought two bottles of French rose, on Tuesday I had two Italian white wines. My father is drinking a red wine from California and my mother a white wine from South Africa at the moment, I think that I will try a bottle of both during the weekend.

Patrick, as a German, you have to try the Eiss wein.
Of course, it is not a wine for every day. But it is like a dream.
I don't know if you are far away from frankfurt, but you should try to visit the Saturday wine market

Teva,

I know Eiswein, but as you already mentioned, it is not a wine for every day. I am searching for a good, not so expensive wine that I can drink in the evening during surfing on a.net, during watching TV or when I am relaxing in the garden. I am sure it will take a long time but I will find some.

Good to know that there is a wine market every Saturday at FRA, when I am there for spotting the next time I should make a short trip to the city to buy a few bottles, I can imagine that the guys there can give me better tips than in my local beverage shop.

Patrick

Patrick,
I am not sure about the frequency (weekly or twice monthly) but you can check easily.
This market is on a little square, and you have small producers.
The big advantage is that you can try their products. Some glasses will be free; for other, you will have to pay.
But at least, if you buy some botles, you know what you buy.
And a glass of eiswein is cheaper than a bottle...
