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.

Pink Champagne and Italian red

Dinner at Sabatini.

Egly-Ouriet Brut Rosé Grand Cru (disgorged Nov 09, 52 months on lees) - I decided to bring a bottle of bubbly for the birthday celebrations, and I was desperately wanting to taste this wine.  I'm a big fan of Egly-Ouriet, and as it turns out so were some of my fellow diners.  Apparently the same Pinot Noir is sold to Anselme Selosse for the Jacques Selosse Rosé...  Lovely nose of red fruits like strawberries, minerals, sweet, with only a hint of oxidation.  

2005 Il Borro - ordered this from the rather expensive restaurant list.  Nose of pine needle, forest, sweet and alcoholic.  Very firm tannins from this young wine that just needs time to soften.

Full post on dinner is here.
