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.

Bollinger, Flor de Pingus and more

Lunch at Crown Wine Cellars.

2002 Bollinger La Grande Année - metallic and ripe on the palate, orange marmalade, mineral, and a little salty.

2010 Grand Village - forest notes, a little sweet on the palate.

Drinks at a friend's house.

2006 Flor de Pingus - really ripe and raisiny, with very strong notes of herbs.  Alcoholic to the point of almost being like paint-thinner.  Very funky nose.

2005 Jackson-Triggs Riesling Sparkling Icewine Proprietor's Grand Reserve - very sweet, viscous and unctuous.  Nose of apricot, marmalade, and a little acetone.  Slightly fizzy.  A little too rich for me.
