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.

MNSC Dinner - Duddell's

Spot MNSC dinner at Duddell's.

2010 Pontet-Canet en demi-bouteille - very young, alcoholic, ripe, jammy, with a little leather.  Very tannic, naturally.

2010 Vieux-Château-Certan en demi-bouteille - nose was more open than the Pontet, with cedar notes and a softer palate.  Tasted even better with the second pour, and was definitely sweeter on palate.

First flight:
2000 Méo-Camuzet Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Au Cros Parantoux - very nice, cleaner on palate but a little more stinky on the nose, with a little orange.  Opened 1½ prior to serving.

1996 Domaine Leroy Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts - really ripe and sweet, beautiful, more voluptuous, more floral.  A little more tannic.

Second flight:
1988 DRC Échézeaux - a little leaner than the 1996.

1996 DRC Grands Échézeaux - rich with sweet fruit, floral notes, really lovely.

Third flight:
1971 Maison Leroy Echezeaux - a little smoky with some sweet fruit, nice and light on the palate.

1971 Bouchard Musigny - nose of Chinese medicine, animal, and leather.  Nice and richer than the Echezeaux.

1983 Armand Rousseau Chambertin Clos de Beze - sooooo sweet on the nose, with honeydew melon, a little banana that reminds me of paint thinner like banana oil (香蕉水).  Was this really a Pinot?!

Full post on dinner is here.
