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 Le Bout de Clos

Drinking at home.

Jacques Selosse Le Bout de Clos, dégorgée le 13 Mars 2013 - nice and sweet nose with prominent notes of Chinese licorice, coconut milk, savory minerals.  Nice and yeasty, with great depth on the palate.  Not a light and easy wine at all.

Ganevat De Toute Beauté

Drinking at home.


2016 Anne et Jean-François Ganevat De Toute Beauté - a little pungent, not quite smoky, leather, grilled meats.  Some floral notes underneath and some potpourri.

Dom, Van Berg, and Ganevat

Dinner at Tasting Court.

2008 Moët et Chandon Cuvée Dom Pérignon Chef de Cave Legacy Edition - pretty easy to drink, with a nice finish that carried more depth.  Not much of a nose.

Roses de Jeanne Côte de Val Vilaine, dégorgée en Avril 2018 - yeasty and toasty.  Good acidity on the palate with some ripeness, but still reasonably stiff.


2004 Didier Dagueneau Silex, en magnum - high acidity as expected, but still pretty rich on the palate.  Lemon citrus nose with a little bit of pipi de chat.

2009 Bernard Van Berg La Rose Réserve -
nice and fragrant, fruity and floral, with leather notes.  Reminiscent of Prieuré Roch but the nose was not as sweet.  Very enjoyable.

2014 Jean-François Ganevat Cuvée de l'Enfant Terrible - nice, sweet fruit, with leather notes.  Stemmy and a little pungent.


Full post on dinner is here.

1943 Sisqueille

Drinking at home.

1943 Sisqueille - lovely fragrant nose of dates, botrytis, bee pollen, nutty.  Clearly oxidized and not too sweet on the palate.
