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.

Haut-Brion tasting and more

Haut-Brion tasting at Manly Wine City.

Tasted the 1975, 1985, 1988, 1990, 1992, 1994, 1995 Haut-Brion together. Liked the 1988 and 1985 the best, same with 1994. All very fruity and concentrated. A bit New World. Didn't like the 1990 as it was too earthy, and same with the 1975.

Drinking at dinner.

1997 Olivier Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet - too acidic for me.

Larrivet Haut Brion, vintage unknown - this was OK.

1997 Gros Frére et Soeur Richebourg - not bad at all. Very nice even though it's not a DRC.

1998 Dugat-Py Gevrey-Chambertin Coeur du Roy - very good effort and I really liked it.

1997 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Spätlese - nice and medium sweet, but the nose was smoke, petrol, and rubber.
