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.

1996 Togni and 1988 Vogüé Bonnes Mares

Drinking at Brown.

1996 Philip Togni - obviously didn't breathe this enough.  Concentrated nose of cassis, a little sweet, a little spice.  Not ready to drink.  Tannins are strong.

1988 Vogüé Bonnes-Mares - obviously less tannic, and the after palate, finish, was much better.  The nose was very nice, classic black olives and leather and red fruits.  Wonderful balance with the acidity and the tannin.  Great Burgundy Grand Cru.

Bought from Vinum for SGD 216.
