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.

Two chardonnays

Dinner at Tempura Uchitsu.

2002 Lanson Noble Cuvée Blanc de Blancs, dégorgée en juillet 2017 - pretty toasty nose, easy to drink.

2006 Kongsgaard Chardonnay The Judge - I thought it was premoxed after popping the cork, but after 2 hours and serving very chilled, the wine got much better. Still ripe on the palate, but not too bad. A little lean and there was some acidity there. Flinty notes and some ripeness on the nose, with caramelized vanilla 3 hours after opening.

Full post on dinner is here.

Drinking at home.

2001 Pride Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon - pretty funky nose, so overripe it was like grape jelly. Alcoholic on the palate, still medium-bodied and concentrated. Cedar notes and almost honeydew melon.
