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.

Riesling and friends

Dinner at Le Palais in Taipei.

1999 Amour de Deutz - fairly mature now, good balance between the ripe sweetness and acidity on the palate.

2008 Hugel Riesling Schoelhammer - big nose with lots of petrol.  Needed time to fully open up.  Most certainly the best offering from Hugel.

1995 La Conseillante - smoky and lovely.  Tannins have softened up nicely.

1986 Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard - smoky, minty, pencil lead, and still lively.  The acidity of the soup brought out the fruity notes and sweetness.  Very nice.

1990 von Schubert Maximin Grünhäuser Abstberg Riesling Spätlese - still have plenty of acidity, with lemon and citrus notes, and almost green apple.

1990 Joh.Jos. Prüm Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese - sweetish but still got acidity.  Big nose of plastic with some white flowers.

Full post on dinner is here.
