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.

Krug and 70 La Chapelle

Dinner at Petrus.

Krug Grande Cuvée, en demi-bouteille - the label was in use before 2004, and indeed I have been cellaring this baby for maybe 15 years or more. Sooooo beautiful! Tons of plum, a little Chinese licorice, Chinese salted plums with savory notes. Really loving the acidity and aftertaste. So nice and complex after all these years.

1970 Paul Jaboulet Hermitage La Chapelle - opened 1 hour prior to serving from the bottle. Earthy, leather, and smoky, with a little bit of savory notes on the palate. Twenty minutes later this was more fragrant with cedar notes. Another 10 minutes later and we had nice tobacco notes. Some 2 hours after opening this became more voluptuous, even floral with some roses and violet. Very happy with this bottle.

Full post on dinner is here.
