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 BV and more

Dinner at a friend's home.


1996 Bruno Paillard Nec Plus Ultra, dégorgée en janvier 2009 - very, very ripe, very smooth with a long finish.  Slightly bitter at the end.  Delicious.

1996 Kistler Chardonnay Cuvée Cathleen - unfortunately this was long gone... much too oxidized and flat on the palate.  A shame.

1970 Beaulieu Vineyard Georges de Latour Private Reserve - decanted just before serving.  Still plenty of vanilla and coconut butter at first whiff, ripe and stewed prunes, later a little smoke.  Very smooth and silky on the palate.  Much later on it turned savory with black tea.

1996 Rayas - really sweet and jammy right off the bat, typical Rayas.  Then a little potpourri, forest, and some leather later.  Suddenly fell off a cliff less than an hour later.

1967 Kopke Colheita - smoky, nutty, sweet dates, and savory minerals.


Full post on dinner is here.
