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.

Mixed bag at home

Dinner at a friend's home.

2015 Jules Desjourneys Pouilly-Vinzelles - toasty and buttery.

2001 Lake's Folly Cabernets - smoky, plummy.  Definitely smelled the acidity on the nose.

1949 Averys Richebourg - way over the hill, with wet cardboard, prunes, and a little stinky.

1997 Comtes Lafon Meursault 1er Cru Charmes - nice and caramelized, a little toasty, buttery.

1989 Trimbach Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Émile Vendages Tardives - tons of petrol and polyurethane, initially short finish, but improved significantly with aeration.  Also white flowers.  Somewhat sweet on the attack but turns drier mid-palate.

2012 Cecile Tremblay Bourgogne Pinot Noir - kindly flat, toasty, kinda firm on the palate.

1999 de Montille Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens - decanted for 4 hours prior to serving.  Strong minty and forest notes.  Pretty ripe fruits.

2002 Torbreck Run Rig - decanted for 2 hours prior to serving.  Pretty sweet and pretty ripe as expected, but a little too alcoholic.  Not drinking as well as hoped.
