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.

2 CdPs

Dinner at Victoria Seafood.

1996 Tardieu-Laurent Châteauneuf-du-Pape - did not breathe this for long. Kinda disappointing. Very light-bodied, acidic, a bit of berries. Nose was OK. Rose petal was very pronounced, which was good. Always mistook it for "soap" but in reality it was floral, rose. Wish it had more body.

Bought from Yamaya for JPY 4,380.

1990 Beaucastel - my third bottle. Hoping for better results since the previous two kinda sucked. Thankfully this one was much better, much more concentrated. Good balance between tannin and acidity. Nose of chocolate, leather, grilled meats, plus fruit. Very smooth. Lots of sediment and needs to be decanted.

Bought from Manly for HKD 790.
