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.

Classic notes and terroir

Dinner at Bonheur.

2005 de Ladoucette Pouilly-Fumé - with floral, perfumed nose and notes of Anjou pear, minerals and a bit of toasty oak. Medium acidity.

2000 Andreas - this showed all the classic Bordeaux traits but the reason why I originally bought the wine was because it was so "New World". It's got classic notes of smoky, pain grille and red fruits. Tannins are round and smooth, and the finish is pretty long. A nice Bordeaux.

2004 Penfolds Bin 707 - a bit of infanticide. This is also classic, with typical Aussie nose of cotton candy, strawberries and sweet caramel. There is no mistaking where this wine came from.
