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.

Burgundy and Rhône

Dinner at Ming Fu in Taipei.

2008 Lou Dumont Bourgogne Blanc Cuvée Famille - a biodynamic cuvée.  Nose was a little oxidized.  Ripe and sweet on the palate, but there's some acidity there for balance.

2005 François Villard Condrieu DePoncins - over the hill for a Condrieu... especially in a ripe year like 2005.  Nose of minerals and lemon but none of the floral notes a Viognier should have...  Ripe and sweet on the palate.

1997 Dominique Laurent Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots - very open, soft and floral.  Fruity with a little plum, and some leather.  A very lovely wine.

1998 Denis Mortet Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St-Jacques - nose was pretty closed at first, with a little mint and a light body.  Gradually opened up a little.

Full post on dinner is here.
