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.

Coche, Les Forts and Beychevelle

Dinner at Iggy's in Singapore.

1999 Coche-Dury Meursault - pretty heavy toast, lots of toasty corn.  Pretty ripe and a little sweet on the palate.  Acidity is definitely on the low side.  Later on very sweet and buttery.  What I would expect from Coche-Dury.

1996 Les Forts de Latour - very solid and classic Pauillac, with lots of smoke, pencil lead, a little earthy, a little sweetness on the palate.  Very nice concentration.

1982 Beychevelle - a little muted at first.  After more aeration the nose was a little smoky and a little grassy.  Drank reasonably well after being shaken up on the plane.

Full post on dinner is here.
