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.

2012 La Grande Dame and more

Drinking at home.

2012 Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin La Grande Dame, dégorgée septembre 2019 - initially tame, but acidity gradually came out, with more depth on the palate.

1990 Domaine de Marcoux Châteuneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes - farmy, earthy, a little bretty, and smoky.  Very soft on the palate.  Over the hill now.

1988 Carruades de Lafite Rothschild - served 30 minutes after decanting.  Very classic Pauillac, with tons of graphite, tobacco, and some cool fruit underneath.  Very clean and pure, with fragrant cedar notes.

Drappier Carte d'Or Immersion - honey lemon, a little metallic.  Pretty lovely and fresh, with a fine balance between ripeness and acidity.  Later showed more toast and yeasty notes.

Full post on the evening is here.
