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.

Latour and Ramonet

Dinner at Caprice.

1999 Latour - this was a very nice wine, drinking surprisingly well. Nose of smoke, red fruits, mint, a little bit of forest and plum. Smooth and initially a bit short and flat on the finish, it gathered weight with more aeration but also picked up a bit of acidity. Not bad at all...

2001 Ramonet Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Boudriotte - this is a wine that I've always liked. Even Sébastien the sommelier remarked that he was surprised at how fresh and vibrant the wine was tonight. Loads of toasty fact I was surprised at how heavy the toast was. Ripe and sweet nose, with corn, citrus and minerals/flint in the nose. Excellent acidity balance. I don't think I could ask for anything more from this wine. Interestingly, the last bottle that I drank a year ago tasted completely different, and I love them both!
