How did you taste Palmer 90, Chave 98 and La Tâche 90 ?
Some great wines to come before the end of the year and my list could also include my "18/20" great wines to my very best displayed above (18,5/20 plus 19/20, no 20/20 this year, unfortunatly)
Pessac-Léognan Les Carmes Haut-Brion 1915 (magnum - remember this beauty at the domain)
Yes, the 1915 Les Carmes Haut Brion is in my top ten best wines of the year for sure! I was not impressed with the 1990 Palmer, finding it nice, but light. I much prefer 1989 Palmer. 1998 Chave Hermitage is a really good wine. Very young and primary, but really great. The 1990 Romanee Conti La Tache is about as good as Burgundy gets for me. Silky, long, sweet and pure, with a beautiful, velvety texture and lots of depth.
