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.

Krug and Denis Mortet

Dinner at VEA.
Krug Grande Cuvée, 167ème édition, ID 318034 - very consistent Krug style, with big, toasty nose, but kinda high on acidity.

1998 Denis Mortet Gevrey-Chambertin Combe-du-Dessus - decanted for 1 hour before serving, which was a little too much.  Loved the nose but it was already peaking.  Slight bitterness on the palate.  A bit of toast with some nice fruit.  Unfortunately starting to be a little flat without a long finish.  With some vigorous swirling, some really sweet fruit aromas were released.

Full post on dinner is here.
