Is it the 1795 Tarrantez? The 1978 Rayas? 31 Quinta do Noval?
Josh, that's just Bernard's oneupmanship. I've never had a bottle of Terrantez older than the 1843 myself.

"Best" to me is not an abstract objective assessment, but a personal and highly subjective. There are several wines I have enjoyed imensely, with everlasting memories, not because they were the best made or the most expensive, but because of the experience. A 1990 Beaucastel from my friend Joe at a wonderful gathering of friends at Dan's house, a grocery store chenin blanc on a trout stream in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with my friend Bud, a Cotes du Rhone Village red at our friend Lisa's wedding, a nowhere near ready Clos de Pape CdP shared with Beth on our anniversary, a Flor de Pingus shared with Ken the day we learned he had Parkinson's disease... I don't know for sure, but I doubt any of these wines would be considered "best" by any competent wine judge, but I don't care that they aren't 98 point wines. Not at all. To me, they were the best because they were part of some of my best memories. The wine is just fermented grape juice. It's the experience that counts.

You'd better think quietly and introspectively about that comment.

In this spirit:
1996 Dom Perignon - introduced me to what great wine could be. Wish I'd bought more.
Krug - Grand Cuvée - Celebrating the final court approval for a best friends recently adopted baby. She waited six years...the wine waited for two of those.
Billecart-Salmon Rosé - Valentine's Day of this year with the woman I'll eventually call my wife.
1995 Disznoko Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos - tasted during my Intermediate WSET Certificate class. My introduction to the wonders of noble rot and appreciation of botrytized wines.

Er. Grand Cru? There's a few of 'em.
Now I'm just trying to be helpful, Tim. No need to be embarrassed, we've all been there. Hoke once thought a screwpull was a -ah- never mind.
