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.

More birthday meals

Lunch at Golden Leaf (金葉庭).

2000 François Mikulski Meursault Les Poruzots - lots of toast, minerals, popcorn and lemon.  Very nice.

Dinner at a friend's place.

1996 Dom Perignon.  The wine was very nice.  Surprisingly I could taste a little age on the palate, as it was very smooth and a little ripe.

2000 Bouchard Corton-Charlemagne - a little disappointed with this.  There were subtle notes of toast and roasted corn, with some ripeness and sweetness on the palate.  But it was nothing like the bottle I had a few months ago, which was purchased at the same time as this one.

1995 Remírez de Ganuza Gran Reserva I brought.  It was very smoky, a little alcoholic on the nose, with sweet fruit, mint and pine needle.  I would never have guessed this was Tempranillo...  I actually carried this bottle back from the winery, which I visited on the trip we did together a few years ago.

Full post on the meals is here.
