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.

A pair of 2000s

Dinner at W52 to celebrate the 10th wedding anniversary of a couple of friends.

2000 Bollinger La Grande Année - initially the nose was a little muted, but later showed some caramel notes with medium acidity. Maybe it's still too young, but it's not very complex right now.

2000 La Fleur-Pétrus - this was a really beautiful wine...beautiful nose with lots of tobacco smoke, grilled meats, sweet fruit, a little mint and coffee notes. Medium-full body, with firm tannins which have started to soften, and a long finish. I'd love to drink this wine again at my friends' 20th anniversary and see how it would have evolved.

Full post on dinner is here.
