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.

Another 1970 trio

Lunch at Hidden.

Yamanokotobuki Furufuru (山の寿  フルフル) - this is an umeshu (梅酒) made with two types of mango - Alphonso and Irwin - as well as passion fruit.  I loooove mango, so it was a no-brainer.  Interesting that there was a hint of bitterness here. 

1970 Mouton-Rothschild - double-decanted 45 minutes before serving.  Smoky nose, not as sweet in terms of fruit.  Some acidity on the palate, with a hint of savory notes.  

1970 Beaulieu Vineyard Georges de Latour Private Reserve - smoky and sweet fruit in the nose.  Still going strong and the wine tastes younger.  Acidity was higher, but the tannins are still around. 

1970 Baron Gaston Legrand Bas-Armagnac - lovely nose with honey, caramel, and medjool dates.  Very smooth, actually.

Full post on lunch is here.
