WOW! Wines...

WOW! Wines...

This topic comes up from time to time on other boards.

We all have the wines that made us go "wow!" initially, and helped get us into serious wine drinking in the first place. But I keep having those experiences -- new wines that still just turn me on and make me learn something new, yet. So call this a "continuing education" thread.

What wines have you had recently that just made you go: "wow"?

For me, I had three this past Wednesday...

1991 Leroy Clos de la Roche
1997 DRC La Tache
2001 La Spinetta Barolo Campe

(The other wines I've had in 2008 that would make the list -- that simply made me go "WOW!" -- would be the 2005 Mas de Boislauzon CdP Cuvee du Quet, the 2001 Armand Rousseau Chambertin, and believe it or not, in terms of "wow" factor, the 2006 Dettori Bianco)
