Laurent... I think I had the last of my top 10 wines of the year a few days ago, it was the stunning 1990 Beausejour Duffau. I will put together my list next week. It was a good year.

Happy Holidays Laurent and everyone. I know this took me a while to put together, but this is my list of the top ten best wines tasted in 2015. What do you think?

Salon 1996 is great (did not you plan to mention Carmes Haut-Brion 1915 in your list ?).
Not tasted the others, unfortunatly ...

For me yesterday evening, a stunning Château Margaux 1996, just starting a great long life (18,5/20+).

3!

Oh My God, you're right! I have changed this list. Look at # 3. http://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/201 ... asted-2015

I'm also right there with you, 1996 Margaux is a stunner. Tomorrow is the last big wine night of the year. There will be some really great wines, but none that would have made my top 10 wines of the year list. At least I do not think so, but there is always hope.

Will I see you in Bordeaux for the 2015 tastings?

Hope I will taste the 2015 Bordeaux.

Yesterday evening, we also had two great wines : Rieussec 2001 and Clos Ste-Hune 2009.
