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 Latour and 82 Landonne

Dinner at Caprice.

Krug Grande Cuvée, en magnum - this magnum was release some time before 2004, when they still used this old label and before they started putting édition numbers on the labels.  Ripe on the palate but not too oxidized... which was probably due to this being a magnum.  Still some freshness on the palate, with nice minerality and a little savory.  Showed some Chinese licorice notes 4 hours after opening.

1982 Guigal La Landonne - served 3 hours and 45 minutes after opening, without decanting.  Probably over-aerated, although there was still some fruit left.  Some leather and animal notes, a little barnyard.  Classic Côte-Rôtie but on the lean side.

1970 Latour - served 4 hours and 15 minutes after opening, without decanting.  Smoke, mint, pencil lead notes on the nose.  Really beautiful and perfect.  Exactly what I wanted out of a Latour.

1998 d'Yquem, en impériale - honey, apricot, acetone, and orange blossom.
