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.

Investor dinner in HK

Treated my investors to dinner at Caprice.

1998 Kistler Chardonnay Cuvée Cathleen - a bit tight when it was first opened. After some time it became fully open, full of toasty oak and minerals. Yummy.

1995 Clinet - smooth on the palate, but the finish was a bit short after having been in the decanter for a couple of hours.

1995 Philip Togni - still full-bodied with tannins smoothed from years of aging, and was clearly the preferred wine over the Clinet.

Château Chalon - an oxidized wine (hence a nose that is so similar to that of dry Fino Sherry) from the region of Jura, the source of Comté.  Matched the cheese perfectly!
