MNSC dinner - The Pawn

MNSC dinner at The Pawn, hosted by The Ox.

1990 Moët et Chandon Cuvée Dom Pérignon - rich and complex.  Delicious.

First flight:  opened 1 hour and 15 minutes before serving.
1985 Faiveley Chambertin Clos de Beze - really sweet and fruity, almost jammy, fragrant and floral, with a little leather.  Very clean.  96 points.

1985 Faiveley Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley - nose a little more muted, with a little more toast, slightly more dirty.  Also fruity but just not as clean.  91 points.

Second flight: decanted 2 hours and 45 minutes before serving.
1990 La Dame de Montrose - smoky, a little savory, minty, almost medicinal.  95 points.

1990 Montrose - a little savory, slightly medicinal, smoky, a little hint of grass, earthy, and a little ripe.  Leaner on the palate.  Much sweeter with the second pour.  95 points.

1990 Beauséjour Duffau - a little peppery, somewhat muted, a little grassy.  Opened up later to show more sweetness.  92 points.

Third flight: decanted 3 hours and 40 minutes before serving.
1985 Guigal La Turque - a little exotic, coconut, a hint of leather, sweet and a bit caramelized.  97 points.

1985 Guigal La Mouline - a little ripe and sweet, some leather, bacon fat, rich, with coffee notes.  96 points.
