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.

70 Mouton and 76 Hugel

Dinner at Caprice.

2010 Moët et Chandon Cuvée Dom Pérignon - pretty toasty nose, pretty nice, and works well with the crab.

2008 George Noëllat Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts - really fragrant and floral, with leather notes. Elegant, with really nice sweet fruit.

1976 Hugel Gewurztraminer Sélection de Grains Nobles - fucking wonderful! Sooo floral, really sweet with honey, acetone notes. Very rich on the nose, and even smells thick and viscous. But the finish was a little short.

1970 Mouton-Rothschild - served about two hours after opening, without decanting. Just beautiful, really fragrant, smoky, minty, lovely woodsy notes, along with a little green pepper. Showing so, so well.

1996 Yquem, en imperial - mineral and flinty, honeydew melon, honey, orange blossom water, and saffron.
