MNSC dinner - Seventh Son

MNSC dinner at Seventh Son, hosted by Curry Jayer.

1989 Krug Collection - opened 3 hours prior to serving.  Absolutely beautiful nose.  Oxidized nose with savory minerals, marmalade, a little bit toasty, flinty, yeasty.  Not much bubbles here.  The palate was a little weird, and the acidity was mild.

First flight: opened 70 minutes prior to serving.
1980 Henri Jayer Echezeaux - very clean, nice nose with animal, a little toast, a little stinky, slightly grassy, and almost a little floral.  93 points

1981 Henri Jayer Echezeaux - a little fruitier, a little richer, a little sweet and exotic.  94 points

Second flight: opened 2 hours and 15 minutes prior to serving.
1990 Rouget Echezeaux - younger than the first flight.  Slightly sharper nose, with nice fruit and toasty notes.  93 points

1993 Rouget Echezeaux - much richer and riper, with forest notes.  Beautiful.  95 points

Third flight: opened 3 hours prior to serving.
1988 Méo-Camuzet Richebourg - animal, sweet fruit, and leather notes.  94 points

1993 Méo-Camuzet Richebourg - bigger, with more toast on the nose.  95 points

Fourth flight: opened and decanted 3½ hours prior to serving.
2004 DRC Echezeaux - tons of floral notes, violet, forest, leather, and bacon fat.  Pretty sweet on the nose.  High acidity on the palate.  Beautiful... just fucking awesome.  97 points

2002 DRC Echezeaux - really sweet nose, very floral, violet, with bacon fat and leather.  Really beautiful.  98 points
