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.

1995 Château d'Ampuis

1995 Guigal Château d'Ampuis - I was curious to see if the wine is now ready, after my last bottle almost 2 years ago.  It certainly was!  Wow!  The nose was classic Guigal Côte-Rôtie.  Lots of violet, leather, game meats, sweet fruits, animal blood.  Very awesome up to about 2 hours in the decanter.  Very smooth on the palate.  Medium-bodied.  Delicious now but wait till it gets better in 5 years!
