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.

Stephan Bassenon

Drinking at home.  Opened the bottle to toast Anthony Bourdain.

2007 Jean-Michel Stephan Côte-Rôtie Côteaux de Bassenon - popped and poured.  Very fragrant nose, with lots of animal, leather, grilled meats, smoke, forest, cedar, sweet fruit, and floral notes from the viognier.  Beautiful.

Curiously, the cork had 2008 stamped on it...

Full post on the tribute is here.
