What’s the best wine Larry Stone has ever had?
One of the greatest experiences I’ve had was with Madeira. I’ve had two Madeiras that really blew me away. They were both Terrantez Madeira — one was made in 1795 and the other was given to me blind and I nailed it as a 1745. I also had a tocai, it wasn’t that old — it was from the early 80’s — that was just amazing. I got it in a little vile — 187 milliliters (half of a half bottle). It was sealed up in Hungary and sent to me and it was just absolutely phenomenal. But then, of course, I have had things like a 1921 Cheval Blanc and a 1947 Cheval Blanc and those were amazing wines too.
