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.

Rhône night

Dinner at Bistronomique @Staunton.

2005 Tattinger Comte de Champagne - toasty, a little ripe on the palate.

1985 La Mission Haut-Brion - very smoky, minty, pencil lead, a little earthy, with some fruit.  Classic claret.  Soft on the palate with velvety tannins.  A beautiful wine.

1996 Guigal La Mouline - beautiful, rich and fat, with leather notes.

1998 Guigal La Mouline - beautiful, with bacon fat, sweet fruit, floral notes, a little coffee and some potpourri.

1995 Chave Hermitage - a little floral, nice and lovely with leather notes.

1998 Jaboulet La Chapelle - initially still a little closed but opened up a bit more later.

1995 Jaboulet La Chapelle en jeroboam - leather and animal notes.

Full post on dinner is here.
