1998 Alter Ego

1998 Alter Ego de Palmer - the very first vintage for this wine.  Fairly forward and easy to drink.

1996 d'Arenberg Riesling the Noble

1996 d'Arenberg Riesling the Noble - same as it ever was when first opened.  Orange rind, glycerin, a bit of honeydew, very very sweet on the palate.  At the same time it was sharp on the palate.

1993 Dugat-Py Cœur de Roy

1993 Dugat-Py Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes Cœur de Roy - pretty bad when first opened.  Very acidic, nothing good in the nose.  Got a bit better with time.  More fruit and mushrooms, black olives, more Pinot-like.  After 2½ hours sweet honeydew emerged from the nose.  Pretty nice, but acidity was high throughout, and tannic.  Pretty disappointed with this.

1992 Sarget de Gruaud-Larose

1992 Sarget de Gruaud-Larose - still as good as it was the last time.  After airing the nose was very sweet, big nose of honeydew.  Very smooth on the palate.  Perfect for drinking right now.
