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.

86 Ducru and white Burg

Dinner at Neighborhood.

2010 Lucien Le Moine Corton Blanc - initially closed so the wine was decanted.  Opened later and showed a little toasty nose, with a ripe palate, and surprisingly almost a hint of coconut.  Later the toasty notes became more prominent.

2001 Joseph de Bucy Meursault 1er Cru Les Bouchères - more mature and ripe than the Corton.  Sweeter nose with Chinese licorice, and a little flinty.

1986 Ducru-Beaucaillou - first bottle was served more than 1½ hours after decanting.  Smoky with a slight hint of vegetal green.  Classic Saint-Julien.  Really opened up after 2½ hours in the decanter.  Always a pleasure to drink this wine.  Second bottle was served after more than 1½ hours in decanter.

Drinks at a bar.

Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve 15 Year - lots of vanilla and caramel.  Very sweet nose.

2004 Moët et Chandon Cuvée Dom Pérignon - nice and toasty nose.  Ripe on the palate.

Full post on the evening is here.
