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.

Born, Cos, and Pichon Baron

Dinner at Nikushou.

Born Gokuhizo Daiginjo (梵 極秘造大吟醸), BY29 - fragrant nose with banana notes.  Lovely.

1986 Cos d'Estournel - served an hour after double-decanting.  Nose very muted, with a hint of grass, a little earthy, and minty.  Finally opened up a little 2 hours after first serving.

2000 Pichon Baron - served an hour after opening.  Smoky, ripe fruit, fragrant with cedar notes.  Tannins are still here and a little grippy on the palate.

Full post on dinner is here.
