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.

A very long day

Drinks at a kiddie birthday party.

1988 Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin La Grande Dame - very savory nose with lots of salty plum.

1990 Deutz Cuvée William Deutz, en magnum - very soft and caramelized nose.  Drinking very well.

2006 Biserno - lots of vanilla and toasty oak.  Very nice.

1997 Sandrone Le Vigne, from magnum - from decanter.  Very sweet and fruity... almost exotic like jack fruit.  Strangely also a little plastic.

1983 La Mission Haut-Brion - very classic claret nose, with lots of smoke and sweet, green grass, pretty bretty and animal.  Drinking beautifully.

1982 Trotanoy - beautiful nose with smoky and coffee notes.

2001 Leflaive Chevalier-Montrachet - beautiful nose, very toasty and flinty.  Mature and rounded on the palate.

Drinks at home with friends.

2012 Dujac Morey-Saint-Denis Blanc - very heavy toast on the nose, almost a little unpleasant in the Zalto Burgundy glass.  But good acidity and nice balance.

Bijoufu Yuzu Liqueur (美丈夫ゆず), from isshobin - always fragrant, with sweetness cut down with crushed ice.

Dinner at Neighborhood.

2000 Chartogne-Taillet - nose was very caramelized and oxidized, with savory minerals.

2012 Lucien Le Moine Corton Blanc - showeing really beautiful toasty nose, with lots of flint.

1985 Guigal Côte-Rôtie Brune et Blonde - nice and mature, showing good amount of sweet fruit, leather, and animal notes.

1997 Jaboulet La Chapelle - nice and smooth now, with good concentration and a bit of leather.

1993 Royal Tokaji Company Tokaji Aszu Essencia - throwing off an unbelievable amount of sediment.  Incredibly unctuous and viscous.  Really rich, with tons of honey and dried tangerine peel, and surprisingly high acidity to balance out the sugars.
