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.

Cristal Rosé and Dame de Montrose

Lunch at Caprice.

2004 Louis Roederer Cristal Rosé - lovely nose, showing marmalade, a little toast, a hint of honey and some strawberries.  Good balance on the palate.

1990 La Dame de Montrose - served an hour after opening, undecanted.  Minty, smoky, earthy, cedar, and still a little bit of fruit left.

1965 Toro Albalá Don PX Convento Selección, from methuselah - raisiny, potpourri, almost a little savory, a hint of medicinal notes, exotic spices, eucalyptus, aged mandarin peel, almost like panettone, and aged Chekiang vinegar with diced ginger used for dipping crab.

Full post on lunch is here.
