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.

Franco-American night

Dinner at Ecriture.

1998 Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs La Réserve, dégorgée en juillet 2016 - very toasty, fragrant, and nutty.

2013 Peter Michael Chardonnay Mon Plaisir - overripe and bitter on the palate.  Not happy about this.

2012 Botanica Pinot Noir - very fragrant and elegant, with ripe fruit but not jammy.  Some spices here, and almost a little bubblegum.

1986 Cos d'Estournel - served 2 hours after opening.  Classic, aged claret.  Very soft and smoky, slightly medicinal/brett, grassy, leather, stewed black fruits, and matured wood on the nose..  Pretty decent and not bad at all.

Full post on dinner is here.
