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.

Meursault Perrières and Cask 23

Drinking at home.

1990 Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Rangen de Thann Clos St. Urbain - very big nose of polyurethane and petrol, with lemon and honey.  Ripe, very soft and rounded on the palate.  A little bitter.

2011 Lucien Le Moine Meursault 1er Cru Perrières - HUGE toasty nose, explosive.  Very flinty. Lemon, and buttery with vanilla notes.  Pretty round on the palate and very ready to drink, with good acidity on top.

1997 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cask 23 - decanted for an hour before serving.  Smoky, minty, fragrant with woodsy notes.  Still got the fruit, of course.  Smooth on the palate.  Drinking so well.
