Darryl’s favorite wines


When it comes to mature and old wine,  Darryl and Nancy quickly spring to mind.  While mature Champagne and old Barolo make Darryl’s list so do relatively young bottles of Champagne and Northern Rhone!

The ones that stick out most were recent:

Madeira, many of them.

The really amazing others were:
2000 Krug, Clos de Mesnil
1986 Haut Brion, Graves
2006 Coche Dury, Puligny Montrachet
1999 Allemand, Reynard, Cornas
1998 Jamet, Cote Rotie
The last 3 were at the N Rhone dinner in Jan, Faryan’s excellent notes: Northern Rhone Masters Dinner.

The mind bending experience of the 2006 F.X. Pichler Riesling Unendlich, what a wine.
