The biggest surprise is his N°1 wine: a unicorn that only a handful of fortunate winelovers had had a chance to taste! 

Number 10:  Champagne Salon 1996 — "the best young champagne he ever tasted…"

Number 9: Château d'Yquem 1937 — "the wine is rich, sweet, long and still delivering its voluptuous goods at close to 80 years of age. 

Number 8: Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Reserve 2003 — "Perfectly balancing power and elegance, the fruit shows a beautiful sense of purity, the textures are soft and silky…"

Number 7: Château Beauséjour Dufeau 1990 — "On the palate, the wine is intense, erotic and incredibly sexy in a good girl, gone bad way"

Number 6: Château Latour 1982 — “This is so good, the scale should be adjusted to allow for 101 Pts!"

Number 5: Château Mouton Rothschild 1982 — "Full bodied, rich and concentrated, there was an elegance to the regal bearing that really showed up."

Number 4: La Mission Haut-Brion 1955 — "At 60 years of age, this amazing wine remains vibrant and alive, with a smoky, fruit filled finished that does not want to quit."

Number 3: Château Carmes Haut-Brion 1915 — "When you add the fact that is a war wine, and we’re talking World War 1, that makes this even more incredible!"

 Number 2: Château Haut-Brion 1961 — "The finish must have remained in your mouth for at least 60 seconds. Popped and poured, this was an incredible tasting experience!”

Number 1: Château Lafite Rothschild Blanc 1935 — "I knew the wine existed as I wrote about it on this site. I never thought I would see, let alone taste it"
