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.

French wines for froggy

Dinner at Seventh Son.

2011 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Embrazées - nice and toasty, a bit floral.  Good acidity behind the slightly ripe mid-palate.

2006 Dominique Laurent Mazis-Chambertin - a little dusty upfront, but pretty nice once it faded.  Got better and better with some nice fruit.

1990 Tertre Roteboeuf - served one hour after decanting.  Just beautiful.  So fragrant, woodsy, a little smoky and minty.

2009 Beaucastel Rouge - minty and ripe.  A little on the young side...

1989 Trimbach Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Émile Vendages Tardives - huge petrol nose, flinty, and white flowers.  A little ripe and sweet, but not too much.

Full post on dinner is here.
