Other wines of 2015

Been a lot of chat about this in various spheres so I thought that by way of establishing wider wine world credentials I would record for posterity some of the non sherry triangle highlights of 2015.

Here would be the top 20 wines from outside the sherry region that I have notes of or can otherwise remember (there were several that slip through the net – in particular two Cotes du Rhone and a Raul Perez white wine that were extraordinary but I just cannot remember them).

Just impossible to choose the very best so not really in order but maybe slightly more impressed as the list goes on.

  • Ceretto Barbaresco Bricco Asili 2008
  • d’Arenberg Dead Arm 1998
  • Rauzan-Segla Margaux 2000
  • Casa Ferreirinha Reserva Especial 1990
