MNSC Dinner - Megan's Kitchen

MNSC dinner at Megan's Kitchen in Hong Kong, hosted by Gayliao.

1980 Dom Pérignon en magnum - nutty, caramel, really sweet on the nose, with marzipan, desiccated coconut that got stronger like coconut butter.  Really delicious and beautiful.  Possibly not kept in perfect condition, but the accelerated aging actually made it into something that's right up my alley.

First flight:
1972 Comte de Vogüé Bonnes Mares - fragrant, almost floral, animal, leather, grassy and almost a little corked, sweet like Chinese licorice, and osmanthus notes. 91 points.

1972 Comte de Vogüé Musigny - animal notes, denser, minty with black cherries. 92 points

Second flight:
1989 Joseph Drouhin Musigny - muted nose with some black fruits.

1990 Joseph Drouhin Musigny - forest notes, more concentrated.  Definitely tasting younger than the 1989.

Third flight:
1989 Lafite-Rothschild - bretty, minty, forest, cedar, and a little sharp on the nose after a while.  Sweet on the palate.

1989 Margaux - more medicinal and a little sharper on the nose.  Not drinking as well as the bottle I had last week.

Fourth flight:
1989 Mouton-Rothschild - exotic and sweet, smoky, leather, bacon fat and a big coffee nose.  Very nice. 95 points.

1989 Cheval Blanc - smoky, fragment, cigar smoke, toasty corn. 94 points.
