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.

1986 Bonneau Célestins

Dinner at Aureole in Las Vegas.

1986 Henri Bonneau Réserve des Célestins - it has an awesome nose, with an incredibly sweet cherries, leather, bacon fat, game meats, and a hint of glycerin. Full bodied with very smooth tannins. Amazing finish that lasts for more than 45 seconds. This wine was really showing well after 2 hours in the decanter.

USD 350 at the restaurant, which I thought was a steal.
