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.

Bongwater with Gert

4-hands dinner at HAKU with Gert de Mangeleer.

Peter Lauer Saar Riesling Brut - big on the palate.  Some ripeness on the front palate but definitely showing acidity in the middle.  Flinty on the nose.  An interesting sparkling riesling.

2017 Brash Higgins ZBO - nose was very floral and honey, orange blossom, and reminded me of Hoegaarden.  Also had a hint of bitterness on the palate.  Could definitely taste the maceration.  Worked well with the tomatoes.

2012 Breton Bourgueil Les Perrières - smoky, animal.  Definitely peppery on the palate.

Graham's 30 Year Old Tawny Port - beautiful with lots of depth and a long finish.

Full post on dinner is here.
