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.

2004s for Sonia and Paulo's wedding

Sonia and Paulo's wedding at the Hong Kong Convention Center.

2004 Pol Roger Brut - apparently this batch was released a little early specially for the wedding, as the wine itself is not yet available in the market.  Lemon citrus, slightly yeasty.  Ripe on the palate.

2004 de Montille Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Caillerets en magnum - big nose with lots of toast, roast corn and minerals on the nose.  Pretty ripe on the palate.  What an absolutely beautiful wine!

2004 Gloria - chosen in memory of Paulo's mother Gloria, who sadly left us last year.  Mint, spices and wood on the nose.  Still a little tannic.

2004 Yquem - totally sweet, with honey and orange blossoms.

1982 Mouton-Rothschild - waiters came around to some of the tables and poured us some of this.  We also received a card from Paulo, addressed to the four MNSC members at the table, saying something like "Stop complaining.  Enjoy the wine and share it with your table."  I guess he does know us well…  Smoke, grilled meats, tobacco, soy sauce, minerals, mint and dried herbs.  Pretty good, but wish I had a bigger pour…

1993 Comte Armand Pommard 1er Cru Clos des Epeneaux en magnum - a friend came over with this bottle and poured me a glass, since I hadn't walked over all evening to mooch off them.  Smoky, grilled meats, mint and black fruits.

Full post on the wedding banquet is here.
