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.

Chave Hermitage and Cuvée Madame

Dinner at Otto e Mezzo.

1979 Chave Hermitage Rouge - lots of leather, smoke, a little floral, very ripe and plummy.  Acidity was a little high, but the wine was still fairly enjoyable.

1995 Tirecul La Gravière Cuvée Madame - lovely orange zest, a little acetone, pretty sweet on the palate without being overboard.  A pleasure to drink such a rare wine.

Full post on dinner is here.
