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.

White Burg trounces Swiss white

Long lunch at Philippe Rochat in Crissiers, Switzerland.

2007 Chasselas Selection Philippe Rochat, made by Domaine du Daley - drank a glass of this. It’s a local wine so I thought I’d give it a try. Was not impressed. Perhaps the wine had been open since last night, and it has gone flat.

1999 Marc Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Virondot en demi-bouteille - this turned out to be a wonderful wine. Golden, honey-colored after a few years of aging, the nose was also full of honey, butter, pear Anjou and green apples. You can taste the ripe fruit on the palate, and there was a good acidity balance and a reasonably long finish. Excellent!
