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.

Rosés and Burgs

Dinner at the Gert de Mangeleer pop-up at Derby Restaurant, Hong Kong Jockey Club.

1997 Salon Le Mesnil - a little toasty and a little salty plum (話梅).  Acidity was higher than expected.

2006 Bernard Van Berg La Rose Jaune Rosé - pretty sweet on the nose, with a little candy, coconut butter, a little Chinese licorice (甘草), sugarcane, and very bubble gum.

2006 Sine Qua Non Autrement Dit - the other rosé in the pair, with a much darker color.  Nose was more pungent, very sweet, and lots of strawberries.

1990 Camille Giroud Pommard 1er Cru Clos Les Epeneaux, en magnum - opened 2 hours prior and decanted 1½ hours prior to serving.  Drinking very well tonight.  Smoky, savory nose with eucalyptus, and fragrant cedar notes.

1993 Hubert de Montille Pommard 1er Cru Les Grands Epenots - nose was a little dusty.  Savory and smoky notes.

1996 Chanson Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches Blanc - nose of marmalade, sugarcane.  Fresh, rich, and a little sweet.

2007 Suduiraut - nose of acetone, marmalade, orange blossom, and honey.  Really sweet on the palate but there's enough acidity for balance.

Full post on dinner is here.
