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 2

Drank these wines on the second day of wedding celebrations in Bali.

2009 Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet - pretty nice, a little toasty.

2008 Ponsot Griotte-Chambertin - forest, leather, dried herbs and plum.

1982 Latour à Pomerol en magnum - very sweet, grassy, earthy with nice fruit.  Soft on the palate.  Later on a little soy sauce and tea in the nose.

2006 Roulot Meursault Les Vireuils - Nice nose… notes of toasty corn but it was soft and subtle.  Very lovely with flint and minerals.

1971 Petrus en jeroboam - nose was so sweet, with coconut butter, so strong and powerful with plum notes.  Palate was OK, but not great.  Later on exotic spices and a hint of savory minerals.

2002 Dujac Charmes-Chambertin - minty, ginger flower, galangal, a little meaty, black fruits and black olives.

1983 Margaux - sweet, ripe fruit, grassy, smoky, really lovely.  Minty, mineral and earthy.

2004 DRC Romanée-Saint-Vivant - nose was very open, minty, fragrant and floral, dried herbs.  Drinking very nicely now.

2006 Méo-Camuzet Clos Vougeot - forest, potpourri, mint and black fruits.

Full post on dinner is here.
