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.

3 Champagnes

Dinner at Kitcho in Taipei.

2002 Louis Roederer Cristal - nose show a hint of salty plum, minerals and marmalade.  Pretty smooth mid palate but kinda tart on the finish.  A good Champagne to go with the food tonight.

2002 Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé - very smooth and soft on the palate.  A little more tart on the palate.

Jacques Selosse Substance, disgorged November 20, 2007 - how can I not love this wine?!  Made only with Chardonnay from the Grand Cru vineyards of Avize, using a solera system which blends every vintage starting from 1986… this is Champagne's equivalent to Tawny Port and Madeira - which I love so much.  Trademark nose of caramelized sugar, straw, cotton candy, apricot, marmalade, salty plum (話梅) and honey.  I'm so glad I brought this bottle tonight.

Full post on dinner is here.
