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 Annual Dinner - Cuisine Cuisine

MNSC Annual dinner at Cuisine Cuisine (國金軒).

1996 Louis Roederer Champagne Cristal - a nice way to start off the evening

2004 Verget Bâtard-Montrachet - we decanted it and it drank beautifully, with lots of butter, minerals and sweet corn on the nose

1966 La Lagune - not from the best vintage or the chateau, but nevertheless drank reasonably well. Not a lot of sweet fruit left in the nose, but rather a bit medicinal

2000 DRC Echezeaux - this drank sooo well and I loved it so. Color was pretty light and a bit cloudy. If I had this in a blind tasting, I would definitely have called it a Cote-Rotie and not a Burgundy! The nose of violet was so prominent, and it's exactly what I love

1999 Emmanuel Rouget Echezeaux - we always knew this was going to be heavier and more closed than the 2000, so we saved it for last. Much more powerful than the DRC, unfortunately this wine never opened fully

Full post on dinner is here.
