Roland’s favorite wines of 2015


Next  up are the favorite wines of Roland.  Roland posts a particularly fun stream of pictures featuring the many wines he tastes throughout the year.  You can be sure the classics will always be there, in my opinion, first from the Rhone then a mixture of Burgundy, Champagne, and Bordeaux.  This love for French wines is reflected in his list.  Enjoy!

Here are my favorite wines of the year, in order by increasing year, based solely on my memory and iPhone photos.  Particularly excellent wines that showed well:  1961 Haut Brion, 1994 Rayas, 1990 Yquem and 1996 Taittinger.
