Marcassin - Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard
I thought this might be past it's prime but I was wrong Not as spectacular as the best vintages but still one of the best California Chardonnays
Faiveley - Chambertin Clos de Beze
Just beautiful. Perfectly balanced with a long finish. Hard to imagine getting any better but plenty left.
Leoville Las Cases
At the top of its game but far from done I recently had the ''95 and '96 and this may not quite equal those but still excellent. Extremely balanced with good fruit and a good but not overlong finish
Peter Michael - L'Apres-Midi
California's best white Bordeaux blend. So smooth and balanced, like a good Chardonnay but not as heavy.
Pierre Usseglio et Fils - Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul
Fully mature but years left. A classic chateauneuf that should continue to evolve
