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.

Wines for cheese

Cheese dinner at Caprice.

2006 Willi Bründlmayer Grüner Veltliner Alte Reben - a little mineral, ripe, muscat grape on the nose.  Sweet with saucisson, but not so good with jamón ibérico.

2009 Michel Bouzereau Meursault Les Tessons - rich and round on the palate, very smooth.  Somehow lacking that heavy toast and mineral nose I associate with Meursault.

2010 Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage - more of that lovely, familiar nose of mint, minerals, violet and pine forest.  Still a little sharp on the nose, and definitely needed a lot of aeration time.  Infanticide.

Full post on dinner is here.
