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.

71 Biondi-Santi and friends

Lunch at Neighborhood.

2002 Piper Heidsieck Rare - nice and ripem very smooth, with good depth on the palate.

1971 Biondi-Santi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva - opened 1½ hours prior to serving, without decanting.  Beautifully smooth, with some acidity.  Smoky with a little coffee.  Even better 2½ hours in, with a bit more sweet fruit in the nose.

1985 Taittinger Collection - very mature on the palate, with Chinese licorice, salted plum, and water chestnut on the nose.

1990 Vilmart Grand Cellier d'Or Coeur de Cuvée, N°3514, dégorgée le 8 avril 1999 - nice and mature with some salted plum and cotton candy notes.

2000 La Chapelle de la Mission, en magnum - opened 2 hours prior to serving. Sweet and fruity, very minty, smoky. Still got a long life left.

Full post on lunch is here.
