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.

2003 and friends

Dinner at Neighborhood.

Jacques Selosse Exquise, dégorgée le 2 Octobre 2017 - lovely nose with some oxidation.  Lots of salty lemon.

2008 Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux - riper than expected, but still showing some leanness and green.  Full-bodied with good acidity.

2003 Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne, en magnum - mature now, with sweet vanilla notes, ripe and buttery.  So sweet on the palate.

2000 Grange des Pères Blanc - ripe on the palate but not too sweet.  Flinty with a hint of acetone.  A beautiful wine that is very big on the palate with a long finish.

2003 Henri Bonneau Cuvée Marie Beurrier, en magnum - unfortunately we forgot to remind our guy to decant this... and he didn't think about all the sediment that would be splashed around... So for me the wine was ruined by all the tannins coming from the sediment.

1995 Chapoutier Ermitage Le Pavillon - initially not quite open, showing minty, smoky, and very cool fruit.  After a while it showed very nicely with a little violet.

2003 Ausone - opened 3½ hours prior to serving.  Ripe fruit, smoky, sweet vanilla.  Pretty smooth on the palate with silky tannins, but still got the concentration.

Full post on dinner is here.
