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.

Selosse, Araujo and La Mission

Dinner at Gunther's in Singapore.

Jacques Selosse Exquise (dégorgée à 15 Juin 2009) - toasty, smoky, very much caramelized with the richness of cane sugar.  Sweet and rich on the palate, as it's a sec with higher dosage.

1998 La Mission Haut-Brion - smoky, earthy, minty, cedar, mineral, a little grassy.  Still pretty tannic.

2002 Araujo Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard - a little coffee and chocolate at first.  Sweeter on the palate, full-bodied, good concentration.  Later on coconut butter came out.

Drinks at Lantern in Singapore.

Moët and Chandon Ice Imperial - ripe on the palate, with marmalade.
