This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

1995 Vieux Télégraphe and Vogüé Chambolle-Musigny

Dinner at Lava.

1995 Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" - this was very closed when first opened.  It is a powerful wine, not like the Beaucastel at all.  Lots of minerals and fruit.  Full-bodied and high in alcohol.  With time it opened up and improved, although at one point I thought I smelled olives!  It needs at least an hour.

Bought from Apex for HKD 270.

1995 Vogüé Chambolle-Musigny - this was a really good wine!  The nose was very nice, with berries and vanilla.  A friend smelled chocolate.  It was very soft.  A wine with finesse, not overpowering.  Good finish.

Bought from Vinum for SGD 98.
