André Clouet and Coche-Dury

Lunch at Hertog Jan in Zedelgem.

André Clouet Un Jour de 1911 - beautiful, yeasty nose.  Love the balance and the depth of flavors here.  Only 1,911 bottles are made each year, from a blend of different vintages.

2008 Coche-Dury Meursault - nice and toasty as expected, a little grassy, almost a bit coffee.  Good acidity here with a bit of ripeness.  After 1 hour, finally turned beautiful without a hint of grass.

2015 Braida Barbera d'Asti Montebruna - very minty, exotic spices, potpourri, very sweet and ripe.

Mondavi and Montrachet

Dinner at Ta Vie.

Drappier Quattor - nice body and good depth with acidity a little on the high side.  Lovely floral nose.

1995 Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Barrel Reserve - minty, earthy, smoky.  Nice and ripe fruit, with a hint of acidity on the finish, although tannins were still here.

1970 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Riesling Spätlese - a little hint of stinkiness, mustiness.  Otherwise flinty, polyurethane, lemon citrus, white flowers.  Good maturity roundness with acidity on the palate.
