MNSC Dinner - Seventh Son

MNSC dinner at Seventh Son, hosted by Gayliao.

First pair: opened and poured 30 minutes before serving.
1970 Mouton-Rothschild - a little green with animal notes.  Some ripe fruit here.  Flat on the palate with relatively high acidity and short finish.  90 points.

1983 Mouton-Rothschild - nice ripe fruit, very farmy with lots of animal notes, smoky and minty.  93 points.

Second pair: opened and poured 30 minutes before serving.
1985 Jaboulet La Chapelle - good, ripe fruit with leather notes, smoky nose.  Really lovely and smooth.  A little lean and not too sweet on the palate.  94 points.

1985 Faiveley Chambertin Clos de Beze - sweet on the nose like candy.  A little tropical fruit.  Pretty light on the palate.  93 points.

Third pair: decanted almost two hours prior to serving.
1995 Petrus - really smoky, pencil lead.  A very big wine with animal notes, almost a little exotic.  Pretty tannic.  95 points.

1995 Rayas - really sweet, candy-like, alcoholic.  A little forest pine and very fragrant nose.  96 points.

Fourth pair:  Decanted about 1½ hours prior to serving.
1999 Rousseau Chambertin - toasted corn with ripe fruit.  Kinda tannic.  95 points.
