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.

Big guns for kiddie bday

Birthday party at Seasons by Olivier E.

1980 Moët et Chandon Cuvée Dom Pérignon Rosé, en magnum - really ripe and sweet nose, with red fruits like red currants.  Just beautiful.

1992 Leroy Corton-Charlemagne - beautiful and fragrant, with a big, toasty nose.  Also pretty sweet and ripe.

2001 Domaine Leflaive Chevalier-Montrachet - sweet and ripe, with less toasty notes.

2001 Rouget Echezeaux, en magnum - leather notes along with some fruit, not quite open.

2003 Prieuré-Roch Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Le Clos des Corvées, en magnum - soooo ripe, so sweet, with flamboyant fruit and woody notes.  Just beautiful.

1982 Trotanoy - smoky, a bit grassy, and a little leather.  Drinking beautifully.

1982 Calon-Ségur, en magnum - more tea and soy sauce notes, earthy, smoky, and cedar.

1966 Vieux-Château-Certan, en magnum - much sweeter and riper than expected, with a little coconut.

1996 DRC Richebourg - floral and beautiful.  Wow!

2010 Liger-Belair Echezeaux - toasty and nice, but needs time to mature.

2001 Sandrone Barolo Cannubi Boschis, from magnum - decanted.  A little smoky, sweet, cool fruit, sweet spices, minty.  Still really concentrated.

Dinner at My Tai Tai.

2000 von Schubert Maximin Grünhäuser Abstberg Riesling Spätlese-trocken - good acidity here, dry without being too sharp.  Classic petrol nose.

2006 Selbach-Oster Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Auslese* - grassy, perhaps a little corked.  A little flinty nose with orange and apricot notes.  Very sweet on the palate and very viscous.

1966 Vieux-Château-Certanen magnum - 5 hours later, the nose had kinda faded but it was still pleasant to drink.

2001 Sandrone Barolo Cannubi Boschis, from magnum - now triple-decanted after 5 hours.  Still got lots of concentration here, and pretty nice.
