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.

V.O. and Albino

Dinner at Whitegrass in Singapore.

Jacques Selosse Version Originale, dégorgée le 20 Decembre 2012 - nose was very nice and yeasty, with lots of minerals.  As the wine was a little warm at first, the acidity was a little high, but this improved with further chilling.  I loooove Champagnes with oxidation, as the nose showed some salted plums (話梅).

2001 Sine Qua Non Albino - a blend of 46% Chardonnay, 40% Roussanne, and 14% Viognier.  This had a huge toasty nose, with lots of roasted corn, with a little ripeness and a little sweet grass.  After an hour the nose became very buttery.  This was soooo fragrant and beautiful.

Full post on dinner is here.
