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.

Ganevat and Kokuryu

Dinner at Tenku RyuGin.

2006 Ganevat Les Vignes de mon Père - a little oak, pollen, and definitely a little more "dusty".  Initially the acidity was high when the wine was a little warm, and the acidity stayed high.  One hour after opening the nose was really fragrant, with a bit more honey and flint.  Kinda lean on the palate.  Opened up further after 2 hours and showed almost like oxidized pear.  Very complex, from vines planted in 1930.

Kokuryu Daiginjo Tenku ni Noboru Ryu (黒龍  大吟醸  天空に登る龍) - seimaibuai (精米歩合) of 50%.  Very tropical nose, fruity with banana and floral notes.  Very sweet both on the nose and on the palate.  Later on the nose showed more fermented rice notes.

Full post on dinner is here.
