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.

2001 Rousseau and 2000 Raveneau

Lunch at Summer Palace in Hong Kong.

2000 Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons - dug this out from my overflowing storage cellar.  Good acidity balance on the palate, clearly on the dry side compared to the sweeter, riper wines from more southerly appellations.  A little alcoholic, with honey and paraffin in the nose.  Minerality became very prominent on the palate together with seafood.

2001 Rousseau Ruchottes Chambertin Clos des Ruchottes - sweet, fruity and floral.  An absolutely lovely wine that was just like a soft, velvety blanket you want to wrap yourself in.

Full post on lunch is here.
