Posted by The Wine Whore |


What's that one bottle of wine that I "HAVE TO TRY" before I die?

1931 Massandra Black Muscat should be on your list

Dude! Would that thing even be drinkable right now or would I need to get in my Delorian in order to enjoy it?

2000 Leoville-Barton and 2000 Leoville Las Cases. Do It!

Rather than recommend a specific wine, I would say the bottle you have to try before you die is the bottle of wine that you share with me in person. It won't matter which wine, though I am sure it will be a very good one, but I bet it will seem excellent because we are drinking it together.

The Wine Whore said...

That's a really awesome suggestion!

Not only do I promise to take you up on that offer one day very soon, but I'll be looking forward to it every day until then! :)

That's going to be a hard one to top!

Penfolds Grange made by Max Schubert (any year) would be right up there on my list!

The Wine Whore said...

Gotta try the Grange! Check!

1985 Domaine de la Romanee Conti Richebourg is probably driking nicely right about now. @fgj1013

Double check on the Grange. Tried a bottle last year and I'm still dreaming about it.

No Delorian needed for the 1931 Massandra (unless it is set for the future). It is still super-youthful- Tastes like it was bottled last year... It shows the longevity of great dessert wines. Great stuff!

1982 Latour would be the would love to try wine. On a similar note, my local Bevmo is having a high end tasting this saturday. Some that stuck out, Joseph Perrier Champagne Cuvee Josephine, St.Michelle forgot the vintage, St. Michelle/Dr Loosen Eroica Riesling 2007, 2005 Chateau Legrange, Caymus Special Edition (vintage?), Cheval des andres bordeaux blend, high end Shiraz, and an 82' port. I think there is going to be a high end Chard in there somewhere as well. Let's just say for the $20.00 price, I will be there. Should be fun!

The Wine Whore said...

Hardy, really?!? How much longer is it good for?

That sounds freakin' awesome!

Holy crap! I'd totally pay $20 for the chance to try those... which city is this in?

It's the Glendale, AZ store in the Phoenix Metro area. Justin the wine Specialist their said that he only had permission to open 1 bottle of each so far so I will be camping out with my lawn chair in the store :)

The Wine Whore said...

That's really cool!

I'd be typing this from their parking lot right now in anticipation!

Will you come back and tell me about it afterwords? I'd really like to live vicariously through you on this one! :)

Hardy said...

I quess that Massandra Black Muscat is going to be shining for at least another 50 yrs or so. So much fruit and acid left on it.

The Wine Whore said...

That's really cool! I never would have thought a bottle of wine could last that long... I know, I'm a dumbass! :)

Does it cost a fortune?

Kate said...

Richard said it best. Amen to that.
As I have written before, in no particular order, for (some) superficial reasons, Cristal, 100 pointer, and Grange.

The Wine Whore said...

I'm coming over when you try those! :)

Cheers!

I will give an update for sure!

The Wine Whore said...

Awesome! Seriously, I'll even give you your own post if you would be willing! :)

Thank you!

Hardy Wallace said...

Randy- I'll send you a msg w/ the details. It is closer to you than you think...

The Wine Whore said...

Thanks Hardy! Really appreciate it! :)

A Penfolds Grange aged 20 years.

The Wine Whore said...
