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.

Wines for 3-star lunch

Lunch at Caprice.

Vouette et Sorbée Fidèle, en magnum, dégorgée le 16 Octobre 2018 - more pronounced mineral notes, caramelized on the edges.  The acidity on the palate was balanced by some ripeness.

Olivier Cohen Les Vignes d'Olivier Ronds Noirs Version 2 - a little smoky, still got fruit, and later a little brett.

1999 Yquem, en imperial - this big boy has been open for a couple of weeks, I believe.  Still pretty nice, with classic notes of honey and botrytis.

Full post on lunch is here.
