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.

Leroy and other Burgs

Dinner at a friend's place.

1990 Pol Roger - yeasty nose, a little caramelized.  A little sweet on the palate with good acidity balance.  The oxidized nose which showed later was very, very nice.

2002 Ramonet Bâtard-Montrachet - nose of sweet grass, lots of ripeness and alcohol here. A bit of orange, lemon and minerals.

1995 Leroy Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot - nose was pretty cardboard, mossy with lots of straw.  I initially suspected it was a little corked but it probably wasn't.  Very sweet nose with a hint of ginger.

1985 Nicolas Potel Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes - nose of lemon, ripe and oxidized, caramel, toasty oak.  Really open and lovely, especially after 3 hours.  I'm glad my last bottle of this wine drank well.

2002 Ponsot Griotte-Chambertin - herbs, a little perfumed with some mushrooms.  Still a bit alcoholic and tannins were still obvious.

1999 Robert Groffier Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses - floral and lily notes, with game meat, animal, minerals, iron and smoke.

1993 Leroy Corton-Renardes - acidity was a little higher than the rest.  A little floral with red fruit notes.  Very elegant.  Not bad at all.

1976 Leroy Volnay - floral, game meats, a bit toasty and pop corn.  Not bad at all.  

Full post on dinner is here.
