My epic 59+1 anniversary wine tasting

by Eugene Bergen

What an epic event.... with great friends and aficionados to celebrate that I made it 59+1 year into what makes life worth living. We enjoyed some of the greatest wines the world has produced to celebrate life and the fact we are able to enjoy it together as friends and likeminded.

total list:

Chevalier Montrachet Leflaive 2010, young, closed
Chevalier Montrachet LeMoine 2010, young
Chevalier Montrachet Pierre-Yves-Colin 2010, grand
Montrachet, Marc Colin 2010

Chateau Latour 1996, a great Latour
Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1996, flawed
Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1996, very nice
Chateau Margaux 1996
Chateau Haut Brion 1996

Chateau Angelus 1990, clearly not in the same league as Cheval Blanc or Latour
Chateau Cheval Blanc 1990, grand wine
Chateau Latour 1990, grand wine

Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1959, epic
Chateau Lynch Bages 1959, truly great wine

Champagne Mesnil S Blanc de Blanc 1996
Champagne Krug 1996
Champagne Dom Perignon 1996

Chateau d'Yquem 2003, just for fun but very nice

Top of the evening: all but the Lafite 1996. But at the very peak Cheval Blanc 1990, Latour 1990, Pierre Yves Colin Chevalier montrachet 2010, Lafite 1959 and Lynch Bages 1959. 

a wonderful, rare, and great celebration.
