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.

98 La Mission and more

Dinner at Nikushou.

2004 B de Boërl and Kroff, dégorgée en avril 2016 - nice and yeasty mousse, fragrant and lovely nose with marmalade notes.

2003 Harlan The Maiden - decanted 1 hour prior to serving. Smoky, grilled meats, minty. Sweet on the palate and tannins were still a little grippy. One and a half hours in the nose showed more coconut butter.

1998 La Mission Haut-Brion - decanted for more than 2 hours prior to serving. Classic claret, with more smoke and leaner palate, higher acidity, and not so tannic. Showed more dusty and dirty notes after 3 hours in decanter, perhaps too much aeration? Poured back into bottle and brought over to Caprice Bar, then improved and showed coffee notes.

Drinks at Caprice Bar.

2004 Clape Cornas - beautiful nose of leather, some sweet fruit, some exotic spices and eucalyptus. Fucking beautiful.
