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.

Meursault Perrières and Clos des Papes

Lunch at The Kitchen in Macau.

2010 Bouchard Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières, en demi-bouteille - a little closed at first.  Oaky and lovely.  After an hour or so lots of buttery richness came out, along with sweet, toasty corn, as well as floral and vanilla notes from the oak.  Nice acidity along with nice ripeness on the palate, with lengthy finish.

2003 Clos des Papes - decanted after opening.  Animal, smoky, and forest notes.  Sweet fruit came out after an hour and 15 minutes or so.  Classic farmy and stinky notes came out later, along with some dried herb.  Starting to drink well.

Full post on dinner is here.
