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.

MNSC does casual

Dinner at a friend's house.

1996 Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs - a little savory, plummy and yeasty.

1999 Armand Rousseau Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos St.-Jacques - a little sharp and alcoholic, slightly ripe on the nose, a little potpourri and a little floral, with some animal notes.  Still pretty young.

1988 Armand Rousseau Chambertin - a bit more animal, exotic spices and red fruits.

1996 Mugnier Musigny - much cloudier and seems older.  Ripe red fruits, also slightly sharp, with a little coconut butter.  Later after chilling down a little, rose and floral notes emerged.

1966 Lafite-Rothschild - really smoky, soy sauce, earthy and black tea.

1990 Angelus - green pepper, a little tight at first, kinda ripe but needed time to open up.  A little soy sauce towards the end.  A little more smoke and earthiness.  Nice but not as good as I had hoped.

1989 Margaux - mint, earthy, concentrated and slightly sweet on the palate.

1976 Lafite-Rothschild - a little grassy, sweet.  Pretty enjoyable.

1986 Margaux - alcoholic, ripe, minty.  Still tight as it's just been opened.
