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.

90 Roulot and 01 Matriarch

Lunch at Madam Sixty Ate.

1990 Roulot Meursault Les Tessons Clos de Mon Plaisir - color now beautifully orange from oxidation.  Ripe orange marmalade, slight hint of acetone, a little salty plum and mineral.  After 40 minutes or so, nose started to show sweet, caramelized sugar notes.  Pretty dry on the palate, with a dry finish and with some sips, the alcohol was pretty obvious as it went down.  A lovely wine.

2001 BOND Matriarch - no surprises here as it's all in-your-face Cali.  Very ripe, sweet, jammy with tangerine, coconut, smoke and pine.  A little sharp at times.  Have started to soften a little but still kinda rough around the edges.

Full post on lunch is here.
