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.

Champagne at home

Dinner at a friend's home.

2007 Henri Bonneau Châteauneuf-du-Pape - ripe fruit, prunes, leather, grilled meat, and almost a little coffee.

2011 Paul Déthune Cuvée à l'Ancienne, dégorgée en novembre 2017 - vanilla, caramelized nose.  Very ripe on the palate.

2009 Roses de Jeanne Les Ursules, dégorgée en juillet 2011 - floral notes here, like a light rosé wine.  Ripe and kinda sweet on the palate, very smooth, with plenty of depth on the palate.  A hint of bitterness here, but not bad.  Leaves lots of fragrance in the mouth, and almost like fermented lychees.  Beautiful.

Henri Giraud Hommage à François Hémart - nice and ripe on the nose, also ripe on the palate but plenty of acidity.  Some toasty notes.  Very long finish.

1997 Aldo Conterno Barolo - sweet fruit, bubble gum, banana, a little floral, potpourri, dried herbs.
