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.

Young Red Bordeaux and White Rhône

Another Friday afternoon drinks in the office.

2003 Guigal Hermitage Blanc - very nice... ripe and sweet with honey, marmalade, a little floral and a little bit of hard cheese.

2005 Rollan de By - nose still closed after an hour of decanting, with a little mint, pretty tannic but acidity a little high at the same time, a little chocolate... Got better after a while, with some smoke and sweetness coming out.  In the end the finish was kinda weird... a little chemical.  Disappointing.  I bought this since I loved the 2004 vintage, which I tasted back in 2008.  I guess this just needs more time to develop.
