Best Wines of 2020

Hello again! It has been a while. Let’s talk about 2021 again, a year that began with much uncertainty. In 2020, after everything shut down, I went to New York in the summer and for Christmas, and that was it. No one was really moving around, and the same went for Q1 of 2021. I scooted to St. Barth’s in January for a very select gathering on a very big boat, and then I went to Miami in March for a long weekend. People were actually going to dinner in crowded restaurants, could it really be??? I survived, the vaccines started becoming available, and soon some trips to New York followed, including a month over the summer. My rotation was limited to a few major American cities this past Fall, but there were some spectacular events that happened. The demand to share and care was pent up, some significant birthdays occurred, and the rest is wine history.

I wanted to get this article out about a month ago, but Covid finally caught up to me after nearly two years of “clean” living in mid-January. One of my kids gave it to me, what was the quote back in the day, was it Scooby Doo, “if it weren’t for those damn meddling kids” lol. Feeling better and better as time goes on, and I don’t plan on staying home forever again, either. In New York the week of March 7th for those of you there, let me know 😉

Let’s get to it, the Wines of the (last) Year! For those of you that are new to this, or for those of you that forget, any wine I give 97 points or up is something I consider to be one of the best wines I have ever tasted. It’s a significant hurdle, and there were 182 wines I tasted in 2021 that achieved that status. 149 of them were 97 and 98 points, and here they are, organized by points and vintage. I know, I should be able to find a way to get these things published, but for now, you get the scores, and what will follow are the tasting notes for the 33 wines that achieved 99 points or plus. 33 notes are a lot for a guy that hasn’t published one in a year. Cut me some slack, if you’re nice to me I might try to start getting one or two of these articles out every month moving forward 😊

Without further ado, here are the 149 wines that I tasted this year that were 97 or 98 points. I would put the accuracy level at 95%, as I don’t always take notes, especially as I get older. After this list come the tasting notes, I promise!

So the 33 wines that got 99 points or plus I have consolidated to a Top 15, I hope it makes sense!

#15) 1989 Haut Brion – This wine achieved 99 points three times for me in 2021. It almost gets taken for granted given its youth compared to the other Bordeaux that usually crack this list, but make no mistake about it, this is one of the best Bordeaux ever made. Here is my best note from last year:

Another monumental bottle of this wine! I don’t think I have ever had more bottles of a specific wine that have consistently scored as great as the 1989 Haut Brion. I mean, occasionally this wine scores 98 or 98+ and not 99. Never 97! And I must have had it 50 times. It will forever be one of the greatest Bordeaux ever made in my lifetime. Let’s get back to the actual note. ‘Nose so good’ is how mine started; the song remained the same. There were so many minerals, wheat and what I deemed great compost. The fruit flashed sweetness like meaningful eye contact from across the room. ‘So good’ appeared again, followed by ‘the best’. There was a tasty nuttiness to its divine finish.

#14) 1988 Roumier Bonnes Mares VV – All I can say about the 1988 Roumier VV is that it remains one of the greatest Burgundies ever made and respectfully request that Roumier makes another, and another, and another. Hands down the wine of the night and thanks to Big Boy for this special treat. ‘Vapor Juice’ according to a very experienced guest, which means it barely exists. For those of you keeping score I would go 99 no question. This was in a perfect spot, its richness, body and length in perfect harmony. Its fruit was rich, its finish was spicy, yet it was still delicate. What a wine!

#13) 1947 Krug Collection – But that 1947. Big Boy insisted we wait and let it unfold in the glass, but I’m not as patient as him. This was richer and wealthier than the 61 – more raw materials to work with. There were more brown sugar kisses, so many kisses. There was also this incredible smokiness along with a unique nuttiness and a savory musk that put this wine in a different stratosphere. I don’t own my own rocketship, but I’ll take a bottle of this instead any time.

#12) 1953 & 1959 Lafite Rothschild – I need to give a little context here, since this is a combo note(s). These were wines 44 and 45 on the most spectacular wine night of my year, hosted by the Rev for his 60th birthday even though he looks younger than me. Suffice it to say when wines #44 and 45 stand out, you remember them, but you may not write as much as usual. Here is the note: The two greatest Lafites ever made. Superb bottles that were pure perfection with all the classic claret components – cassis, cedar, pencil, nut, caramel, a touch of cream and lots of spice. Exceptional balance between fruit and finish and the sweetness was just right. Superlative stuff!!!

#11) 1992 Ramonet Montrachet (Magnum) – I have had a long love affair with the 1992 Ramonet Montrachet, often giving it 99 points. This one was right there; I am pretty sure the last time I had this made my top wines of the year as well. 1992 was also a sweeter vintage but it didn’t come across as sweet as the Leflaive (a 2001 Montrachet Magnum), and it had more tropical rainwater to it along with absolutely stunning texture. Its palate was gorgeous with honey, corn and burnt sugar flavors lingering both in the mouth and in the belly. It sparkled on its finish. Special wine.

#10) 1945 & 1978 Rayas – Unlike my Lafite combo, these will be two separate notes on two separate occasions. Rayas is one of the world’s most thrilling and unique wines, I guess that’s why its prices have gone up almost 200% this past year or so! The first note references Instagram, where I post most of my notes these days, come follow me lol.

I feel like it might be time for me to go on a run. Not like a real run don’t be silly lol. Like a run of posts and see if I can break my previous record of 20+ days I forget the number. My California trip is off to a sizzling start and reminded me that some of the best bottles are the ones you can’t sell. This Rayas was either from 45, 47 or 49 as that is what my friend bought from a great old cellar decades ago, but the vintage tag had fallen off, so there was no way to verify which one it was. They did not brand the corks with the vintage back then. So we drank it. This is even pre-Jacques, you can see L. Reynaud on the label for Louis, who was one of the first to estate bottle and sell his own wine in Chateauneuf. The wine was glorious, and based on my experience with 40s vintages in general, I think it was a 1945, but that is really irrelevant. The relevance is how amazing Château Rayas is, one of the truly unique and spectacular wines in the world. Having been there and seeing and understanding the unique microclimate there, I am not sure anyone else can do the same with Grenache. The wine aged magnificently, still with fresh strawberry fruit, extraordinary balance and significant length. The Provençal spice and the touch of brand-new leather were the right supporting actors to the fruit, which was the star of the show. So good, so special, so lucky!

Sexy, rich and decadent, the 1978 gave me a cherry cola impression at first. This was all about the Grenache, but the usual strawberry was second place to the rarely seen and under-appreciated lingonberry! Lingonberry!!! I am so glad to have two Rayas in my top wines of the year as I love it so!

#9) 1961 La Mission Haut Brion – It was tough to imagine a better bottle but somehow the La Mission edged out the Latour. It took longer to unwind and show its full frontal. At first, leather, charcoal and gravel dominated. It was a touch musty, which blew off into a beautiful mesquite and sandalwood. The palate was also fleshy and deep, its purple haze balanced by minerals and tobacco, almost a touch of clove. The finish lifted off like billionaires do these days, and that’s what separated the La Miss ever so slightly. Its chocolate components got sexier and sexier and ‘amazing’ appeared numerous times in my notes.

#8) Every 99-point Rousseau of the Year. So here you see how I have consolidated, as there are six of them, including one twice. What is most surprising to me is that 5/6 of them are also Clos de Beze, which can often trade 20% less than the “regular” Chambertin. Hmmmmmm. Regardless of that market inefficiency, no one can doubt that if Rousseau is on the label, the wine will be great, if not one of the best wines you’ve ever tasted. From youngest to oldest:

1993 Rousseau Chambertin Clos de Beze – Long-time readers will know my deep and lasting love for this wine, and this was another spectacular example. This was a thick, rich and heavy wine, with amazing concentration and a wow finish. Its flavors showed the full spectrum of Burgundy greatness. This was a heavyweight boxer compared to anything else, period! This was the one Rousseau that breathed the rare air of 99 points twice.

1991 Rousseau Chambertin Clos de Beze – The Beze was spectacular, with great fruit and musk in its nose. Tender strawberry, cherry and cranberry aromas were amidst a playful pillow fight for alpha status, but it was tough to pick a favorite. Wintry spice blanketed its sexy fruits, and great citricity and acidity began a list of many other greats in my notes. Its spice became ‘unbelievable’ and its leather smacked my mouth around. This was a wow wine. ‘So sweet’ and ‘sweet unctuosity’ came from the crowd. Its palate was bright like Scandavian summers. This was a stone-cold killer of a wine.

1991 Rousseau Chambertin – First 99 point wine of 2021. I’d say more but was too hungover from the forty wines I sampled over 36 hours this weekend. This was the St. Barth’s trip I previously mentioned. It’s tough to take notes when the Admiral is in charge!

1985 Rousseau Chambertin Clos de Beze (Magnum) – Both Bezes were extraordinary. The 1985 was more than rich; it was generationally wealthy, still young and still with a touch of baby fat. Dark, black fruits dominated this sumptuous and sexy wine, which was clearly WOTN so far. I couldn’t stop commenting how impressed I was with its youthful showing. A perfect bottle.

1971 Rousseau Chambertin Clos de Beze – Can someone explain to me why the Rousseau Beze is always less in price than the “regular” Chambertin? Is it the label design lol. Recent head-to-heads of both 1991 and these glorious 1971s had Beze on top by a decent margin. The 1971 was pure magic, silky and sensual with fabulous flavors and a delicacy unfound in younger wines. It was a real treat especially since my vintage. Another thank you to the one and only Big Boy.

#7) 1961 Dom Perignon Wedding Cuvee (Magnum) – The magnum of 1961 DP, the ‘Wedding Cuvee’ for Charles and Diana, was as good as older Champagne gets. Even though it was the 43rd wine I sampled on this day, it got my attention. ‘So good!’ was the initial impression. Rich, vivacious and sparkling as much as anything possibly can; its wintry, white flavors balanced out with its sweet caramel and honeyed finish. So much spritz out of magnum still, that always makes the difference! Rocket fuel!

#6) 1964 Giacosa Barbaresco Santo Stefano Riserva – This was the first vintage of SSR, and also the vintage of Ray Tuppatsch. Some of you may know him as King Angry; he later transformed into the Cardinal, then La Machina. I may be missing a name or two. To me, and to those that knew him well, he will always be King Angry, ready to let everyone know if someone was not representing appropriately for any given event. Ray was one of my first true friends in wine; we explored and drank our way through everything together. It is with great sorrow that I let all of you know that Ray died in 2021 at the very young age of 57. It was a heart attack. Ray was not a big doctor guy; in fact, he avoided them. All I can tell you is that you need to check yourself every year for everything, and if you don’t this is what could happen. This was my first great loss of a friend, someone my age. When Bad Boy summoned a few of us for a gathering, this bottle reached out to me, and it was the perfect choice for the perfect gentleman, Ray Tuppatsch. The wine was complex with cement, rose, sour cherry and ceramic aromas and flavors. Clay, cigar and more cherry dripped in my mouth. I couldn’t and didn’t stop drinking this nectar of a wine. Italian wines don’t get better, and neither do Italian guys! I love you and miss you Ray Tuppatsch.

#5) 1954 Henri Bonneau Reserve des Celestins – First vintage. Thrilling bottle. Shy on the nose but explosive on the palate. Lots of red fruits and barbecue aromas, great freshness. Consistent with the 1990 I had a couple months ago as to the overall quality, but this was better given the tertiary flavors that came out. Rich and decadent this was a bottle that deserved some singular attention and got it to the last drop. Chateauneuf du Pape in all its glory!

#4) La Tache. La Tache. La Tache. Here is another consolidated combustion of one of the finest wines made year after year. Any time any vintage of this is opened, it is a special occasion. Six vintages, seven notes, let’s roll it back again youngest to oldest:

1999 DRC La Tache – This was the second of the three 99-point wines sampled on my first wine weekend of 2021, and it delivered the apogee of this wine’s experience. It had a sweet core amongst dense layers upon layer of fruit. Rich, dense, chewy, thick, long, this wine was packed with fruit and blessed by a touch of good green. Amazing juice!

1991 DRC La Tache – The 1991 was in a perfect spot. It was redder than the 99, more sensual and less powerful. It was very perfumed with great leather and spices. Still with grip, this was ‘high-toned with bracing acidity’ and reminded another guest of ‘treble versus bass.’ Another found a Barolo-like edge to this beauty of a bottle, and there were classic menthol kisses to this spectacular La Tache.

1990 DRC La Tache – The ’90 La Tache’s nose was a deep, dark forest with lots of iron and the glove to go with it. There was incredible acidity here, and there was no doubting that this was one of the great bottles of this wine. I made a side comment about bottle variation, but let’s focus on the iconic bottle that I was enjoying. Its palate was full-bodied, rich and long. It was so deep and so young still, yet showing evolution with its citrus and leather backside expression. There was so much rust, leather and spice here, I envisioned Marco Polo coming back home with an incredible bounty of goods – all in this singular sensation of a bottle!

I had two 99-point experiences with the 1990 this year. A weekend in St. Barths started my wine year, and this was the ‘wine of the weekend.’ I can’t remember if it was two or three nights, but this was the last wine we tasted and certainly the best of forty wines sampled, although it wasn’t the first 99-point wine of the weekend, as you already know!

1978 DRC La Tache – Big Boy hailed the 1978 as ‘the real deal,’ and I could not disagree. It had all the mint and menthol action, spearmint to be more specific. It was a buttery wine in the mouth, oozing richness and tasty brick and caramel complexities. Its finish was long and full of acidity; there was no doubt that greatness was upon us.

1971 DRC La Tache – The 1971 LT was another level from the rest. Decadence was the first word that came to mind. There was this glaze of honey to go with signature menthol and musk. Its fruits were a touch blacker with a pinch of tar to go with its (of course) great acidity. Mint, cherry and ceramics rounded out this perfect bottle.

1959 DRC La Tache – Heads and shoulders the best LT of the flight, which was six significant samurais of vintages for La Tache. Flat-out awesome, this was indubitably a perfect bottle, brimming like a dozen fresh roses on Valentine Day. ‘Juicy’ came from JB, and it was so rich, so saucy, like the best homemade Italian red sauce. There was a touch of cereal/oat/wheat to it in a tasty way, rounding out this spectacular wine.

#3) 1947 Lafleur – The chances of having a real bottle of 1947 Lafleur is slim to none. But on this magical weekend, Vandermeulen came through with a spectacular bottle of this wine; make sure your Vandermeulen bottles have an embossed label! That is the lesson I learned on two occasions this week. Concentration was what this wine was all about; it came with the expected richness and mouthfeel accordingly. It dripped plums and prunes, chocolate and mocha. It stood out even after the 45 Mouton that was my – spoiler alert – one of my favorite wines of 2021! This wine was deep, deep inside, deep as the Milwaukee Bench, and that’s not basketball talk, that’s oceanography! Incredible wine!

#2) 1945 Petrus (with a Best Supporting nod to 1989 Petrus) – There was a staggering amount of great old Petrus on Bad Boy’s 14th Annual 50th Birthday Party, but none greater than the 1945 Petrus. This was my second perfect bottle of 1945, and I’m not sure I will see a third any time soon. It has been a while since the last one. This was an epic bottle from the greatest vintage of the 20th century. It had it all – the plum, the chocolate, the leather, the minerals. Everything was in perfect proportion including a finish that still hasn’t quit. PS – the 1989 had on this same night is the modern day equivalent of the 1945 and its equal for sure – lock and load up!

#1) So there were three wines that achieved the very rare 99+ points this year. It is impossible to say which one was best as they were each the best wine on three of the best wine nights I ever had. Let’s keep it consistent and go youngest to oldest:

1971 DRC La Tache (Magnum) – So this was one of the crown jewels of my 50th Birthday weeklong celebration. The next wine was, too, but I digress. I’m a very lucky guy. The month preceding my 50th birthday (I was born on 11/21/1971 for those who like to keep score), I was privileged to taste 1971 La Tache twice out of bottle, once out of magnum, and once out of jeroboam. This magnum was definitely the best of all the 1971 La Taches I was fortunate enough to have this past Fall. Here’s the note:

Very thankful to be born in 1971 and having the opportunity to have this wine four times out of three formats this month! This magnum was the best of them all. ‘Perfection’ was the first thing I wrote. Incredible musky spice and a sensuality of sweet red fruits that very few wines can match. Roses, strawberries, Asian spices, menthol…its minerals kept morphing and its spices kept spitting like a great MC. This wine had a lot to say, and it made the whole room go giddy. It had incredible richness and mouthfeel, and its acidity and lift took its finish beyond borders. The 1971 La Tache still remains of the greatest wines ever made.

1947 Petrus – This was a perfect, once-in-a-lifetime bottle of 1947 Petrus. I’ve never had one before quite like this and might never again. The signature ‘motor oil’ of the Right Bank in this vintage, which isn’t always there, was on full display here. This bottle hadn’t been moved in decades before it made its way to me. So much chocolate and cream, oceans of fruit, and a thickness and richness unmatched by any other wine made my wine spine shiver. ‘Sex appeal’ and ‘wow’ came from the crowd. With its kinky fruit and a sexy, stylish finish, this wine was all dressed up with only one place to go: “In my belly!!!”

Last but not least is a wine that usually graces my Top Ten, actually my Top Three, for the years that I am fortunate enough to taste this legendary wine. It doesn’t get any better than the 1945 Mouton Rothschild. And when you taste over fifty of the best of the best of the best wines ever made (Eternal Thanks to The Rev!), and this wine is a step ahead of the rest, there you have it. And here you have my note for one of the greatest of the greats, the 1945 Mouton:

The most extraordinary weekends call for a most extraordinary wine, and make no mistake about it, that wine was the 1945 Mouton Rothschild. This is a wine I’ve had plus or minus 15 times in my life, and it’s been as good as it gets 3/4 times. Thats’s 99+. This is where I write a long love letter to Bordeaux and talk about how no region can age as consistently and spectacularly as Bordeaux, even if you have to wait at least 30 years. Some things are worth the wait! Caramel, mint, eucalyptus, cassis – 25% each and decadent to the last drop. I am licking my lips just thinking about it again.

2021 turned out to be one of the best wine years of my life, and I have been doing this a long time. I’m not sure if I can ever duplicate the above, but I can tell you one thing. I sure as heck am going to try! Let’s get together again!!! Special thanks to the Birthday bashers, where a significant amount of these 99-point wines were sampled – Bad Boy, The Rev, Operation Starfish, and even though we are still waiting for Big Boy’s much anticipated 50th Birthday Celebration, a special thanks to him for always bringing the Big Boy bottles! Lots of love for all of you who read this to the end, and lots of love to the people that make the world’s greatest wines!!!
