Brunello, and other Tuscan reds, are home base for me. I enjoy wines from many other regions as well, and love to organize,and participate in, wine themed dinners in NYC. Twitter @brunellobob

Wines that Blew my Mind

This list is about wines that really made an impression on me. By that I mean, from the first whiff of the nose and the first sip, all the way through to the dregs, they were a joy to drink. These are wines where the bottle is empty way too fast. In every case, these wines developed additional characteristics over time in the glass, often catching me by surprise with the changes. They are wines that make you want more, and make you want to explore other vintages from the same producer. So, in no particular order, here are some wines that blew me away.

1. Perrot-Minot Henri Charmes-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes (1996)

This was the first wine, for me, that showed what the big deal was about Burgundy. Such complexity, and nuance. Really seductive and elegant. Beautiful spice notes, clean fruit, and great development over time with dinner. Great balanced acidity and clean fine tannins. Sure there are plenty of better Burgundies, but this one left a wonderful impression, and planted the Burgundy seed in my mind.
