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.

Pichler and Potel

Dinner at Toutouan (燈燈庵) in Taipei.

2007 F.X. Pichler Riesling Smaragd Loibner Berg - my friend opened this bottle the night before and drank less than half the bottle.  Very floral with lots of white flowers, white pepper, mineral and a little sweet honey.  Round and rich on the palate.  Very nice despite having been exposed to oxygen for a day.

1990 Nicolas Potel Meursault 1er Cru Perrières - initially pretty closed, with some marmalade, sweetness on the nose but slightly bitter.  Over time the nose opened up and some of the classic toasty nose of Meursault came out, but overall it was a little green and straw-like.  Not like a Meursault at all, and pretty disappointing.

Full post on dinner is here.
