QPR Hall of Fame

#1 Post by Brian_K » October 10th, 2020, 4:10 pm

QPR is ultimately in the eye of the beholder. It’s a subjective term that can carry tremendous weight. A solid QPR could mean anything from a $15 Red Blend that drinks like a $50 bottle, or a $50 Napa Cabernet that drinks like something much more expensive.

In that spirit - what wines would you place in your own personal QPR Hall of Fame?

Does QPR cap out at $50? A few of my top QPRs are:

Bouchard GC and 1er whites
MM GCs
Aged Ducru
Canon
Dupont-Tisserandot Charmes
Potel
Ramonet rouge
Prum WS

Gilbert Picq Dessus la Carrière Chablis
Every Chablis from Louis Michel
Faury St. Joseph VV
Most of John Enfield’s wines
Laurent Perrier Grand Siecle
Krug Grande Cuvée
Rosè champagnes from Egly-Ouriet, Dethune, Hebrart, Goutorbe, Vilmart.

If I had time to think about it, I’d probably list many more.

Greatest QPR in the history of QPR.

Ive had 2+ cases over 25 years, including last one year where I declare it the best QPR ever:

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=154240&p=2610231&hi ... y#p2610231

And gave a couple recos of similar wines. None will surprise.

António Maçanita's Fita Preta series: highly creative (dare I say boundary pushing) terroir inspired, quality approach to winemaking for no more than 25€ a bottle.

Anselmo Mendes' Contacto. Can't think of a better summer quaffer for 10€.

A lot of wines from the Portuguese cooperatives who have learned to upgrade by hiring very competent oeonologists. The ones like Vila Real or Vermelha are turning out daily drinkers that, for 3-5€, are quite simply unbelievable. Others, sadly, have yet to follow suit.

Too many German wines to mention (none titled GG, a German term apparently meaning raise the price)
Dublere Chorey les Beaune
Wines from the Cote Chalonnaise from producers like Faiveley, Villaine, Domaine des Moirots, Juillot and others
Ridge Geyserville
Chateau Pradeaux
Bernard Moreau Bourgogne Blanc
Chablis Premier Crus from Christian Moreau and Moreau-Naudet
Hudelot-Noellat and Jouan villages level wines
Rossignol-Trapet Latricieres Chambertin
Ramonet and Bernard Moreau CM rouge
Croix Beaucaillou

For me the list is as follows:
Felsina Chianti Classico (non-reserva) (as previously mentioned by others)
Bedrock Old Vines Zin (as previously mentioned by others)
Nino Franco Prosecco Rustico
Trimbach Riesling
Bodega Chacra "Barda" Pinot Noir
Nervi Gattinara
Beaurenard CDP
Ciacci Rosso di Montalcino
Donnafugata Ben Rye
Domaine De Villaine Bouzeron (Aligote)
Felsina Vino Spumante Brut Millesimato (I've found this near impossible to find in the US)
Uccelliera Rosso di Montalcino
GD Vajra Rosa Bella (Rosato)
Alvaro Palacios Carmins del Priorat
Belle Pente (several from this producer): Pinot Gris, Muscat, Estate Chardonnay, Gamay, Belle Pente Vineyard Pinot Noir, and Estate Reserve Pinot Noir

A lot of the non-Barolo or Barbaresco bottlings to come out of Piedmont: Freisa, Grignolino, Barbera, Dolcetto, Pelaverga, Arneis, Nebbiolo Langhe. I find many of these grapes to be unbelievably unique, complex, and sometimes age worthy. I also enjoy the history behind a lot of these producers and/or grapes. Favorite producers across the board for the most part include: GB Burlotto, Cavallotto, GD Vajra, Ettore Germano and Bruno Giacosa (on the pricier side for this category), and most other solid producers from the region.

A few of mine are me sounding like a broken record, but I have been buying these QPRs for almost 30 years:

Olga Raffault Chinon Les Picasses

Chateau Sociando Mallet

Chateau Lanessan (Bouard now on board 2015+ so buyer beware)

Ridge Geyserville

Chateau Meyney (not thrilled with 2005 or 2009, but seem to be back on track)

If Krug MV is considered an all time QPR, I am playing in a different world.

Love the wine but $150 is a great price for it and it’s hard for me to say it’s clearly underpriced for the quality.

+1 here. these wines are great

also a big fan of the i Custodi label. those bottles age well and can be found really cheap

Drouhin Chorey-lès-Beaune
I bought some on your rec. Don’t let me down ;)
No pressure! [wow.gif]
Lol, I’ve bought the wine numerous times before, your glowing note just spurred me to find some this year. Another I always like is Drouhin’s Cote de Nuits Villages.

Sherry
+1
Was drinking an Bodegas Tradicion Amontillado VORS over the weekend and am just absolutely amazed by the insane complexity. Pricey for sure ((~80€ ex-cellar), but soooo good
Importer of Sophienwald and Code38 in the Netherlands. Big lover of German Riesling and Spätburgunder as well as Loire Chenin Blanc.
