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.

Corton Charlemagne and Nuits-Saint-Georges

Dinner at St. George.

2000 Bouchard Corton-Charlemagne - elegant nose of flint, toast, white flowers, tangerine and sweet corn, with the sweetness dominating after a while. Medium to high acidity on the palate. Very nice.

2005 Mugnier Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Marechale - I was a little playful and wanted to drink a NSG at night in a place called St. George... unfortunately this wine really disappointed, and was nothing like what I had last year with the winemaker. Nose was very muted, with a little sous bois but basically it never opened up. Very smooth on the palate, almost a little flat.

Full post on dinner is here.
