MNSC Dinner - Megan's Kitchen

MNSC dinner at Megan's Kitchen, hosted by Gayliao.

1995 Charles Heidsieck Blanc des Millénaires - pretty fresh, slightly ripe on the palate but with a short finish.

First flight: decanted 1½ hours prior to serving.
1996 Latour - very young and alcoholic, a little sharp.  Nose was a little exotic, with vanilla notes and sweet, ripe fruit, along with earthy, smoky, and lead pencil notes.  96 points.

1996 Dujac Clos Saint-Denis - really sweet fruit, with strawberries, a little forest.  A little bitter on the palate, but otherwise just a a really beautiful and stunning wine.  97 points.

1996 Comte de Vogüé Musigny Cuvée Vieilles Vignes - pretty fruity, a little muted at first, and kinda like cherry-flavored cough syrup.  A little chalky, and a little bubble gum.  92 points.

Second flight: opened 45 minutes prior to serving without decanting.
1993 DRC La Tâche - showing cool fruit, a little minty, slowly opened up, with nice sweet fruit.  93 points.

1993 Mugnier Musigny - nose was a little weird and a little dirty.  92 points.

Third flight: opened three hours prior to serving without decanting.
1991 Mugnier Musigny - rich, ripe, a little sweet, and some minty notes.  95 points.

1991 Comte de Vogüé Musigny Cuvée Vieilles Vignes - a little sharp on the nose, pretty ripe, a little sweet, and a little toasty.  93 points.

1991 Dujac Echezeaux - really open and absolutely beautiful.  Very clean with floral notes.  97 points.
