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.

70 mags and more

Dinner at Yong Fu.

1970 Moët et Chandon Grand Vintage Collection, en magnum, dégorgée novembre 1999 - really fragrant nose, with marmalade, honey, Chinese licorice.  A little savory, and just lovely.  Picked this up from a Sotheby's auction a few years ago when this collection was released from the house.

2002 Moët et Chandon Cuvée Dom Pérignon, en magnum - much more toasty on the nose, yeasty, nutty.  Very lovely.

2007 Arnaud Ente Meursault Les Petits Charrons, en magnum - really beautiful.  Lots of lemon citrus, and enough ripeness on the palate balanced out by good acidity.  Flinty, a little buttery.

2008 Dugat-Py Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot - pretty flinty and mineral, with sugar cane notes.

2007 Hospices de Beaune Clos de la Roche Cuvée Georges Kritter, mis en bouteille par Domaine Ponsot - very fragrant with a little cedar and beautiful fruit.

1970 Ducru-Beaucaillou, en magnum - decanted just before serving.  Nose of cigar smoke, a little green pepper, black tea, and soy sauce.
