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.

2003 x 4

Dinner at a friend's home.

2003 Dom Pérignon - very well balanced on the palate, with a light, toasty nose.

2003 Kongsgaard Chardonnay The Judge - opened 1½ hours before dinner and decanted upon arrival.  Still  tight 2 hours after opening.  Very sweet with lots of vanilla notes, toasty, pretty ripe on the palate but not over-ripe.  Citrus, lemon notes along with a hint of apricot.  Nose still going strong some 4 hours later.  Color was a light golden hue, showing signs of age.

2003 Armand Rousseau Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos St.-Jacques - lots of forest notes, smells like stems, sweet and ripe berries.  Reasonably good concentration here.  Very enjoyable.

2003 Ducru-Beaucaillou - green pepper and vegetal, potpourri, brett and smoke.  Nose was still a little sharp from the alcohol.
