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.

Piedmont and French

Wine tasting at Mayfair Fine Wines.

1971 Nicolas Potel Pommard 1er Cru Pézerolles - my friend very generously gave me a pour from this bottle.  What a lovely wine!  Nose of plum and Asian spices... almost floral.  Very elegant after 40 years.  The lovely nose lingered in my glass, and I almost didn't want to move on to the next wine...

2007 Le Petit Lion de Marquis de Las Cases - the first vintage of the "second wine" from Las Cases.  Typical of modern vintage Bordeaux... minty, ripe, very alcoholic on the nose, with cedar and other forest notes.  A little too young.

Dinner at Gold.

2004 La Spinetta Barbaresco Vürsù Vigneto Starderi - pretty young and pretty alcoholic, with nose of black fruits, prunes and dried herbs.  Later on the nose was more smoky.  Fairly smooth.

2008 Domenico Clerico Barbera d'Alba Trevigne - very sweet nose with lots of vanilla and oak.  Definitely alcoholic.  Needs a few more years.

Full post on dinner is here.
