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.

Groffier Amoureuses and Gaja Sori San Lorenzo

Dinner at la FESTA in Taipei.

2008 Robert Groffier Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses - beautiful nose right after popping the cork, with coffee, nutmeg, red fruits, mint, hazelnut, toasty corn, toffee and lovely floral notes.  So young but already a pleasure to drink now.

1995 Gaja Barbaresco Sori San Lorenzo - opened for 30 minutes and decanted for an hour prior to serving.  Minty, potpourri, dried herbs, really ripe and sweet fruit, alcohol was high but surprisingly not sharp.  Sous bois and licorice.  Still very powerful and concentrated.  This wine has a long, long way to go.

Full post on dinner is here.
