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.

Omadhaun and Poltroon

Dinner at Yong Fu.

2002 Moët et Chandon Cuvée Dom Pérignon Plénitude 2 - very toasty nose.  Always smooth and lovely to drink.  Pretty lively.

1996 Sine Qua Non Omadhaun and Poltroon - roussanne and chardonnay blend, with more roussanne in the mix.  Very ripe on the nose, very oxidized... much more so than expected.  Sugar cane, honey, a little metallic, very complex nose.  Lovely, but a little too ripe and over the hill.  Not sweet on the palate, though.  About an hour after opening, kinda alcoholic with a little flint.  Disappointing as this bottle seemed a little over the hill.

2009 Kongsgaard Chardonnay The Judge - definitely oxidized nose with a little acetone, and some savory notes under the sweetness.  After some aeration, this seemed leaner, a little more alcoholic, and somewhat bitter on the palate.  Sweet, buttery notes showed up after about 30 minutes.  Still very much alive.

Full post on dinner is here.
