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.

1940 Haut-Brion and more

Dinner at Caprice.

1995 Charles Heidsieck Blanc des Millénaires - warmed up a little in glass and showed a nice, toasty nose, and also citrusy.  Ripe on the palate and slightly bitter on the finish.

1940 Haut-Brion - initially a little dirty, stinky, bretty, smoky, but still have fruity notes like prunes.  Surprisingly crisp and fresh sweetness underneath.  About 10 minutes later, the nose showed more leather and stewed prunes notes, even some pencil lead.  With the second pour some 30 minutes later, the nose was clearly less fresh, and palate showed more acidity.  It all went downhill after 45 minutes.

2010 David Duband Chambertin - very fruity, showing fragrant cedar notes, and almost a little floral.

Jacques Selosse Exquise, dégorgée à 27 Julliet 2016 - a little sweet on the palate, with marmalade and a little toast.
