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 - 1982 Right Bank

MNSC dinner at the Board Room in Grand Hyatt.  The last of the series of '82 dinners and the theme was 1982 Right Bank.

Pol Roger White Foil - not so impressed.  A little too sharp and young for me.

1982 Trotanoy

1982 Lafleur - what a beautiful wine! Started with a little bit of fruit in the nose, while being strong and powerful on the palate.  Opened later to a very sweet nose with loads of ripe fruit, grilled meat and mint.  Second favorite wine and almost on par with Petrus.

1982 Latour à Pomerol - drinking beautifully and almost on par with the big boys.  The best value of the evening given its fractional cost compared to the big guns.

1982 L'Evangile - very ripe fruit in the nose.  A bit of Chinese medicine and smoke.  Later on sweet grass emerged in the nose.  On the palate, the tannins were pretty rounded, with a good, long finish.

1982 L'Eglise-Clinet

1982 Petrus - you just can't say anything bad about this wine... This was absolutely amazing.  Very, very sweet nose.  Finish was long.  I was blown away by this wine.  My favorite wine of the night.  Everyone agreed that this was a great bottle.
