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.

Cali and Bordeaux

Dinner at Sup 1 in Hong Kong.

1996 Laville Haut Brion - nice ripe nose of marmalade, minerals and oak.  No length whatsoever on the palate.

1990 Philip Togni - smoke, grilled meats, kinda sweet on the nose with a hint of brett.  I've always loved Togni's wines and this was lovely.

1991 Opus One - ripe and sweet fruit, with mint, a bit of earth, black fruits, and later on a little grassy.  Nice and smooth.  My contribution.

1995 Angélus - nose was a little sharp and alcoholic at first, but this disappeared with my second pour.  A little ripe and cooked, smoky, coffee and chocolate.

1989 Margaux - "perfumed" according to the Specialist… although it was indeed fragrant.  Smoky, mineral with soy sauce.  Surprisingly still lots of concentration on the palate.

1998 Angélus - needs more time to open up, but classic smoky nose.
