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.

Bordeaux, Rhone and Burgundy

Drinks at Classified in Happy Valley.

1989 Le Gay - in true Pineapple style, he served his namesake wine for the crowd.  This was classic Pomerol and drank very well.
1989 Rayas - I had higher expectations for this wine, but the initial whiff showed a slightly cooked and pruny nose, along with earth and minerals.  I guess the wine just needed more time to air before being drunk.  It also didn't help that a few cigars had been lit by this time and smoke filled the room.

1990 Latour - this was courtesy of a friend who had brought his leftover wines from dinner.  Very classic, with mint, smoke, a hint of sweet grass.  Lovely wine.

2003 Coche-Dury Meursault - another leftover, but so enjoyable!  I've always loved Coche-Dury and this was just classic.  Big nose of toast, with underlying sweet, buttery corn.  I can just drink this all day!
