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.

MNSC Dinner - Sine Qua Non

MNSC Dinner at Cine Citta.  Theme was a selection of wines from Sine Qua Non.

1997 Sine Qua Non Imposter McCoy

1997 Sine Qua Non Twisted & Bent - this interesting blend of 60% Roussanne and 40% Chardonnay was amazing.  Nose was so sweet, buttery and complex... Dayliao thought it could be a Burgundy Grand Cru.

1998 Sine Qua Non Veiled - a pretty decent Pinot, but the label was what really impressed everyone.

1998 Sine Qua Non E-raised - a pretty awesome Syrah... very sweet and powerful.

A real eye-opener about the quality of these wines.

Chave, Leroy, Trotanoy

Dinner at a friend's home in Tokyo.

1993 Domaine Leroy Corton-Renardes - wow! This was definitely very good stuff. Really sweet, fruity nose. Glad I have a few more of these!

Bought from Farr for GBP 167.

1982 Trotanoy - what a disappointment. Nose full of wet chalk, not much fruit at all.

1990 Chave Hermitage Rouge - this was very good, performing up to expectations. Full-bodied with a wonderfully sweet nose of fruit and grilled meats.
