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.

2006 Chacra

Lunch at Mono.

Charles Dufour Bulles de Comptoir #8 Stilllebenm, dégorgée mars 2020 - interesting nose with honey, apricot, flint... pretty toasty and lean.  More intense on the palate.

2006 Chacra Pinot Noir Treinta y Dos - some black prunes, smoky, leather notes.  More mellow and elegant now, but lost a lot of the fresh and intense fruit it possessed when young.

Full post on lunch is here.

2017 Meroi Chardonnay

Drinking at home.

2017 Meroi Colli Orientali del Friuli Chardonnay - very buttery and caramelized nose, with marmalade, lemon, and a hint of toast.  Palate was a little on the ripe side.
