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 Dinner - Yung's Club

MNSC annual dinner held at Yung's Club (嚐真) - the 8th floor of the Yung Kee Building. Theme was Vega Sicilia Unico vertical.

1942 Vega Silicia Unico - sweet nose with strawberry bubblegum, preserved plum notes. It was a bit acidic on the palate at first, but later on it also tasted like preserved plums (話梅) with licorice (甘草). 93 points.

1967 Vega Sicilia Unico - very sweet nose with a bit of smoked meats and mint. Acidic on the palate at first, but with some grippy tannins at the same time. 94 points.

1957 Vega Sicilia Unico - very sweet nose with prominent bacon and grilled meat notes. A bit medicinal but a wonderful wine. Still pretty full-bodied on the palate. 94 points.

1962 Vega Sicilia Unico - a bit plasticky and alcoholic. Nose is sweet buta bit chalky. 92 points.

1964 Vega Sicilia Unico -Very sweet nose with a bit of smoked meats, and strong notes of stone and gravel, a bit flinty and steely. 94 points.

1953 Vega Sicilia Unico - lots of caramel, vanilla and mocha notes enveloping the core of sweet fruits. A bit chalky. Very awesome and my wine of the evening. 96 points.

1970 Vega Sicilia Unico - a real shame because this wine did not have enough time to open up, as we finished the dinner earlier than expected. There was some sweet fruit but it was still pretty closed.
