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.

Dominus dominates

Dinner at Le Moût in Taichung.

2008 Bauget-Jouette Blanc de Blancs «Le Moût Restaurant» - nice acidity with a little ripeness.  Nose was still a little sharp and somewhat toasty.


Egly-Ouriet "Les Vignes de Vrigny" Premier Cru, dégorgée en Juillet 2015 - rich and full-bodied on the palate with a long finish.  Very interesting and toasty nose, with a bit of caramel.

1996 Trimbach Riesling Clos Ste Hune - this was a little more mature than I had expected.  Lovely nose with flint, mineral, a little toasty and smoky, along with a little bit of honey.

1997 Chartron et Trébuchet Corton-Charlemagne - a little vanilla and almond, buttery, a little sweet on the nose, with tropical pineapple, straw, and Chinese licorice.

1996 Dominus - very minty, oaky, cedary, and fragrant.  Smoky and a little earthy, with a hint of tea.  Slightly sweet on the palate.  Full-bodied and smooth on the palate.  Drinking very, very well right now.

Full post on dinner is here.
