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.

Bordeaux and sake

Dinner at Wa San Mi.

2011 Cos d'Estournel Blanc - definitely some green apple, toast, a little flint.  Some ripeness on the palate but the acidity was still here.

2000 La Chapelle de la Mission - still a little pungent and farmy at the open, a little bit of fruit showing. Served 1½ hours after double-decanting.  Pretty fragrant and open.  Half an hour later the wine was more smoky, and showed wonderful integration of the oak.

Akabu F - seimaibuai (精米歩合) of 60%.  Very easy to drink, with banana, sweet fermented rice notes.  A little dry mid palate.
