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.

Balinese wedding mix: day 1

Drank these during the first day of a wedding in Bali:

1996 Bruno Paillard Blanc de Blancs en magnum - a little yeasty, but a very lovely wine.  I can drink this all day.

2004 Henri Boillot Chevalier-Montrachet en magnum - lots of toasty corn, a little oaky.  Very nice.

2008 Château Fuissé Pouilly-Fuissé Vieilles Vignes en magnum - this wine has surprised me on the upside in the past, and it was drinking very well tonight.  After warming up the glass a little with my hands, the floral nose came out and was very refreshing, with a little tropical and marzipan nose along with minerals and a hint of oak.  Ripe on the palate but there's enough acidity to balance it out.

2008 Ponsot Griotte-Chambertin - nose of forest, plum, and almost a little like plum jam that has been cooked.  Palate was a little weak and not as enjoyable.  Sealed with the synthetic cork that Laurent Ponsot showed us when we visited him.

2009 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Riesling Kabinett Alte Reben - made from very old vines.  Intense petrol and flint in the nose, with a little manuka honey and orange blossom.  A little sweet on the palate and really nice.

1992 Philipponnat Clos des Goisses en magnum - nose of sugar cane and straw, a little lemon.  Ripe on the nose and the palate.  Lovely.
