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.

La Chapelle, Montrachet, Charmes and Noble

Dinner at Danny and Company in Taipei.

2002 Fleurot-Laroze Le Montrachet - nose was initially toasty and smoky, with some sweetness.  While toasty notes faded it became buttery, coconut, pineapple, apricot and straw.  Sweetness remained throughout in the nose. Opened 1 hour prior to dinner and decanted at the start of dinner.

1999 Geantet-Pansiot Charmes-Chambertin - eucalyptus, mint, pine needle and sweet.  Very enjoyable.

1998 Jaboulet La Chapelle - forest, dried herbs, potpourri, fragrant and beautiful.  Acidity was surprisingly a little high.  Opened 4 hours prior to dinner but not decanted.

2006 De Bortoli Noble One - honey, marmalade and a little acetone.
