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 at Sotheby's auction

Wines served at the Sotheby's auction.

Louis Roederer Brut Premier

2008 Alion - nose was very sweet, sugary, bubblegum, vanilla, a little smoky, spices like nutmeg, lots of oak and very fragrant.  Pretty forward and more "New World", but I like it.

2008 Bachelet Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes - acidic and a little thin on the palate.  Smoke smoke and maybe some rhubarb.  Not enjoyable at all.

2001 Corbin - nose of sweet fruit, dried herbs, lots of smoke, mint, mineral and earth.
