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.

Dom and Lynch-Bages

Dinner at Fook Lam Moon to celebrate a 40th birthday.

1996 Dom Pérignon - the nose was yeasty, and the wine was pretty ripe on the attack, with some minerals mid-palate and a slightly dry finish.

1970 Lynch-Bages en magnum - I bought this around 10 years ago. I decanted it at home and, as I broke the cork and it dropped into the bottle, brought both the empty bottle and the decanter to the restaurant. It was a classic claret, with the usual nose of smoke, grilled meats, mint, a hint of caramel and sweet fruit. It was obviously an old vintage, but the body was still there. Finish was a little dry at times.

Full post on dinner is here.
