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.

Oxidized whites

Lunch at a friend's place.

2001 Pride Viognier - this was definitely over the hill, and I suspected as much before popping the cork. Nose was ripe, with toasty oak and honey. Color was a golden hue like honey, and the freshness that Viognier should have in its youth is long gone. Oh well...

2006 Taille aux Loups Montlouis-sur-Loire Sec "Rémus" - nose of lemon, toasty oak and minerals with a little ripe, sweet nose. Much better than the Pride Viognier but a very different wine from the one I tasted back in 2008.

Full post on lunch is here.
