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?
Wendouree Pressings... also De Vogüé's Musigny Blanc.
Vogue Musigny Blanc is made pretty much every year. The vines were replanted in the early 90s. it was then declassified until 2015 because Vogue felt the vines were too young to warrant the GC designation. It was not a decision based on the quality of the vintage.
Thanks Keith. I guess what I mean is that it hasn't always been made as Musigny Blanc.
