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.

MNSC Rhone Trip: 1995 and 1998 Chave Cathelin

Dinner at 7 par Anne-Sopie Pic in Valence.

2006 Roulot Meursault 1er Cru Charmes - very smoky and toasty nose.  Ripe and a little alcoholic.

1998 Chave Hermitage Cuvée Cathelin - spices, dried herbs, minty with grilled meats.  Still very tannic and not ready.

1995 Chave Hermitage Cuvée Cathelin - sweeter, black fruits like prunes, dried herbs.  A little sharp on the nose.  Much better on the palate.

Full post on dinner is here.
