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.

Sunday mix

Dinner at Ta Vie 旅.

2002 Agrapart Vénus - a blanc de blancs brut nature, so there's no dosage.  From old vines planted in 1959 and plowed by a mare called Vénus.  A little yeasty, with some sweet caramelizes sugar... especially evident after extended aeration.  Toasty nose.  Ripe on the palate but still got the acidity, with a tart and long finish.  Drinking very nicely now.

1998 Henri Giraud Fût de Chêne Collection - late-release.  Ripe on the nose and palate, with red fruits like raspberries and also minerals.  Not showing as well as the Agrapart.

1988 Cheval Blanc - drinking very nicely now, with good red fruits, mint, a little pencil lead, and a little smoky and earthy.  Smooth and silky on the palate.  Very, very nice.

2007 Suduiraut - lovely nose of honey and orange blossom.  Classic botrytis nose of polyurethane and acetone, along with ripe honeydew melon.  Pretty sweet on the palate.

Michel Couvreur Pale Single Single - a Scotch Whisky matured in Burgundy.  Took it with a cone-shaped cube of ice.  Pretty nice and not too peaty.  I guess it was indeed "floral"...

Full post on dinner is here.
