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.

2008 Domaine du Castel and others

Lunch at Sports Club.

1995 Montrose - minty with some fruit and leather in the nose.

Drinks at Amuse Bouche.

2004 Moët et Chandon Cuvée Dom Pérignon - toasty and pretty yeasty.

2008 Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux - a little flinty on the nose.  Rounded on the palate with some ripe fruit, but lean and acidic on the finish.

2008 Bachelet Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Corbeaux - a little flinty and acidity was higher than expected.  Not a fan of this.

2008 Domaine du Castel Grand Vin - nose was a little dusty at first, with animal and minty notes.  Palate was a little exotic, leaning towards new world.  Still pretty tannic but slightly sweet on the palate.  After an hour in the decanter some smoke emerged.  Needs time to open up.
