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.

Champy and Burg

Lunch at Pierre Gagnaire in Paris.

Jacquesson Cuvée N° 733 - this was smooth on the palate if slightly flat, with lemon citrus nose and not too dry on the palate.

2003 Coche-Dury Meursault - it was reasonably priced. Wow! This wine just blew me away. Very heavy toast on the nose with sweet, buttery popcorn. A little sweet on the palate. This was just an amazing wine that just kept giving. I can't believe that this was just a village wine! It's easy to see why everyone begs Jean-François for more allocation...

2003 Roumier Chambolle-Musigny - big nose of mint, eucalyptus and black fruits. My mistake was not ordering this earlier, so the wine didn't have too much time to breathe before we drank it. But it did well under the circumstances.

Full post on lunch is here.
