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.

Girardin and Stigler

Dinner at Petrus.

2005 Vincent Girardin Puligny-Montrachet Les Pucelles - good acidity on the palate, almost crisp, with a hint of roundness on the palate.  A little toast on the nose, flint, and lemon, with a slight hint of butter.

2009 Stigler Freiburg Schloßberg Spätburgunder Großes Gewächs - opened for 1½ hours without decanting.  Really lovely with cool fruit, black cherries, sweet but not quite honey-level.  Eucalyptus, fragrant oak, dried herbs.  Slightly bitter finish.

Full post on dinner is here.
