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.

The first Friday afternoon drinks in the office

1999 Haut-Brisson - smoky, sweet stewed fruits, medjool dates, sweet caramel, pine needle, alcoholic, browning at the edges... Nose is nicer than the palate.  Actually the wine died quickly in glass and became kinda yucky on the palate.  This vintage is a couple of years after the Kwok family purchase.

1998 Denis Mortet Gevrey-Chambertin Combe-du-Dessus - sweet, ripe fruit, mushrooms, smoked game meats, a hint a preserved plum... beautiful nose!  I looooove this wine.  Getting close to the end of the case I bought in 2000.
