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.

Bunch of Grand Cru Burgs

Drinking at Wine Vault with old and new friends.

1990 Armand Rousseau Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos St. Jacques - lovely nose with plenty of fruit and herbs.

1993 Leroy Clos de Vougeot - a little faded, a little pruny, pretty dusty with a little bit of leather.  Acidity is slightly higher on the palate.

1989 Armand Rousseau Chambertin Clos de Beze - lots of toasted corn, plenty of sweetness from the fruit.  Beautiful wine.  Definitely a class above the others.

2002 J.M. Boillot Bâtard-Montrachet - lots of toast, but a little dusty.

1996 Jamet Côte-Rôtie - loads of violet, very open and beautiful, and smells like freshly steamed corn on the cob.  What a lovely wine!

1996 Zind Humbrecht Pinot Gris Turkheim Clos Jebsal - lots of apricot, honey, peach and nutty notes.  Very ripe and sweet on the palate.

1993 d'Auvenay Bonnes-Mares - lots of fruit, a little bit raw and a little sharp.

2001 Anne Gros Richebourg - the Specialist joined us and contributed this bottle.  Very sweet and concentrated, with mint, forest and animal notes.  Quite lovely at the end once it opened up.

1992 Leroy Richebourg - a bit smoky, a little floral and plummy.

1993 Méo-Camuzet Clos de Vougeot - very heavy toast, smoky with animal and leather notes.

1971 Huet Vouvray Moelleux Le Mont - honey, floral, pollen, a hint of grass, marmalade notes.  Medium sweetness with obvious acidity on the palate.
