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.

Foillard and Viader

Lunch at Derby Restaurant.

Franck Bonville Brut Prestige - both acidity and ripeness on the palate.  Not too acidic for a blanc de blancs.

2010 Jean Foillard Morgon Cuvée 3.14 - unfiltered and cloudy.  Nice acidity on the palate, with toasty corn, sweet fruit, animal, and leather notes.  A wine that is drinking beautifully now.

1997 Viader - decanted 1 hour prior to serving.  First whiff showed black olives and stewed prunes.  Later with vanilla, forest, and meaty notes.  Mature now and somewhat disappointing.
