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.

Selosse, Fonsalette, Lynch-Bages and more

Dinner at a private dining facility.

Jacques Selosse V.O., dégorgée le 21 Avril 2015 - lovely caramelized nose.  Wonderful balance between acidity and ripeness.

Benoît Déhu Cuvée La Rue des Noyers, dégorgée le 4 Août 2016 - richer on the nose thanks to pinot meunier, with good acidity.

2000 Château de Fonsalette Rouge - opened for 1 hour prior to serving.  Initially a little muted but later showed some leather and game notes.

2014 Gaja Gaia and Rey - tropical fruits, very fragrant.

2000 Lynch-Bages - opened for 1½ hours before decanting.  Very smooth with good acidity.  Fragrant with smoky notes and sweet fruit.

2009 Château de Fonsalette Blanc - very fragrant nose, a little minty, almost like a chartreuse.

Full post on dinner is here.
