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.

Hodgepodge for Chinese

Dinner at a private dining facility.

2004 Delamotte Blanc de Blancs - yeasty nose, and slightly acidic on the palate.  Very easy to drink.

2008 Roses de Jeanne Côte de Béchalin, dégorgée à avril 2015 - surprisingly a little floral on the nose.  Palate was surprisingly soft, and not much acidity.

2006 Selbach-Oster Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Auslese* - initially a little pungent with plastic notes, then a little more richness came out with marmalade notes.

Suehiro Kaeikura Daiginjo (末廣 嘉永藏 大吟醸) - seimaibuai (精米歩合) of 35%.  a little sweet and round on the attack, but spicy mid-palate with a spicy finish.

1990 Camille-Giroud Pommard 1er Clos Les Epeneaux, en magnum - decanted for about 2 hours before serving, which was probably too long.  Notes of leather, plum, earthy, and coffee.  The waiter poured a lot of the sediment into the decanter, so the palate wasn't as elegant as it should have been...
