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.

Sipping wine at the Zachys auction

Zachys auction in Hong Kong today.

1998 Pol Roger Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill - toasty with a bit of caramel/creme brulee in the nose. Very young but had a nice acidity balance.

1988 Latour en imperial - classic, with mint, cigar smoke, prunes and a bit of brett in the nose. A nice wine to drink with the food.

1997 Jaboulet La Chapelle in jeroboam - a little disappointing, with high levels of acidity and not much of the trademark nose that I have come to love. I guess it needed more time to breathe.

2000 Talbot - not bad, with mint, grilled meats, smoke and a hint of orange in the nose. It was a little acidic but overall a very pleasant wine to drink.
