Just got caught falling down a rabbit hole thinking about wines that aren't necessarily produced regularly and can demonstrate the power of truly amazing vintages (or try to- we've occasionally seen some of these turn out to be mistakes on the parts of the hopeful producers).
Beyond d'Yquem, Vintage Port, and some top-tier Champagnes (Salon, Clos de Mesnil, etc..), what wines do ya'll think of when you consider this special/unusual category?
Jeremy, This has been a really thought provoking question. Thanks!
I'm having a hard time coming up with New World, any ideas y'all?
The above wines from Coche, Unico, Gaja, SQN, Grillet, Pingus are all produced regularly. I would say the only time that some of these are not produced are in exceptionally poor vintages.
Pepe is made almost every year, as far as I know. Valentini, as Keith listed above, is made only in select vintages. Is there a vintage since 2000 that Pepe didn't produce?
