How many have YOU had of Decanter magazine's "Wine Legends"?


I am totally embarrassed to say I've had seven of the specific wines they mentioned, and two more but in different vintages.

It is lists like this one that make me remember how truly fortunate I have been in my career in the wine trade.

Happy Holidays to all . . . .

  1. You *are* lucky.

    Only two here.

    Happy Holidays.

    1. Four specific for me. Three in different vintages.

      Merry Christmas all.

      1. Have had 5 exact and four from different vintages of the remaining.
        The Hugel SGN 1976 bought from MacArthur in D.C. 30 some years ago still resides in my 'best' wine cooler waiting for the right occasion, perhaps my death.

        l found it interesting l had never heard of one of the 'legend' wines, nice to learn something.

            Don't know, still waiting, certainly hope so.

        1. Only 2 for myself. Always was a sucker for Trockenbeerenausles.

          Sorry to see the 1975 Dom Perignon did not make the list. A huge favorite of mine from the mid to late 80s.
