Re: What's your favourite wine.... and why???

I wouldn't call this my favourite wine but it was very nice. I am not a white wine drinker usually but this one worked so well with spicey foods and seafood we had that day.

Cave Spring  2006
Indian Summer 
late harvest riesling

it is from the twenty valley Niagara wine region , Ontario Canada.

Re: What's your favourite wine.... and why???

Did someone mention Corton-Charlemagne? What a wine. One of the best examples I know is from Boneau du Martray.  Its not cheap but relatively good value for Grand Cru Burgundy. I tried a 1995 3 years back and it was a like a Damascus experience. If you get a taste for it though it can lead to bankruptcy.

Do you mean you fell to the ground, went blind and started hearing voices?  I would say you drank too much of that Burgundy! lol
