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.

1969 Marquis de Laguiche Montrachet

1969 Joseph Drouhin Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche - drank over dinner at Paris 1930 in Taipei.  Decanted about half an hour before dinner, this wine kept improving until hitting a plateau about 2 hours later.  A big nose with lots of toast, sweet like shredded coconut, straw, Chinese licorice, lots of ripeness, tobacco, buttery, sweet corn, nutty with a hint of coffee.  Slightly acidic on the palate.  Very, very good.  Extremely happy with this wine, and certainly a privilege to drink it! 

Full post on dinner is here.
