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.

Magnum evening

Drinks at Ginsberg + Chan.

2007 Jobard-Chabloz Meursault Les Grands Charrons - nice and flint, mineral, kinda lean, with lemon citrus.  Pretty clean.

2005 Gaja Darmagi - very fragrant and lovely nose, with exotic spices, dried herbs, mint, pine needle, potpourri and some ripe fruits.

Dinner at On Lot 10.

2002 Louis Roederer Cristal en magnum - nice and ripe, sweet on the palate, with good acidity on the finish.  Pretty toasty with lemon and almost marmalade on the nose.

1995 Ramonet Bâtard-Montrachet en magnum - nice nose with notes of straw, butter and a little marmalade.  Nose was oxidized but in a good way.  Color was starting to turn golden.

2004 Mommessin Clos de Tart en magnum - very nice and fruity, with strawberry notes.  More elegant than I expected, but maybe that's a sign of the lighter vintage.

1999 Ceretto Barolo Prapò from magnum - clearly more tannic here.  Nose of ripe fruit, forest, cedar and a little smoky.  Very, very nice actually.

Full post on dinner is here.
