    Re: What was your game changer??

    82 Pichon Lalande. Wasted the first by drinking in 86. When I gained patientce and opened the 2nd one in 91, it opened my mind to why people cellar wines. Was able to make the reamining 4 hold out until about 2000 and all were sublime.

        Two outstanding memories:

        * 1959 Latour at the Chateau during dinner
        * 1863 Cos d'Estournel

            Palmer 1988, tasted 24th December 1998.. was the first expensive wine I ever bought. It got me hooked on red wine..
            Léoville-Las Cases and Latour 1959, tasted 31st December 2000, showed me how spectacular aged Bordeauxs can be.. and got me addicted..
            "Terroiristes de Léoville"-demands: Clos du Marquis for 5th Growth and Léoville-Las Cases for 1st Growth status.

                  Thanks for the awesome responses. With so many varied responses it truly has affirmed that wine is such an individual experience. That being said...glad to see that the '87 Montelena made anothers list.

                  Keep 'em coming.....
