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.

1982 Cave Privée

Dinner at Louise.

1982 Veuve Cliquot Cavé Privée, bouteille 2443/3500, dégorgée en mai 2014 - definitely nose of sugarcane and water chestnut water (竹蔗茅根), savory notes like Chinese salted plum, caramelized sugar, and marmalade. Soft and lovely on the palate, with enough acidiy still.

2018 J.L. Chave Sélections Saint-Joseph Offerus - huge metallic and minty nose, reminiscent of blood. Very young and tannic.

Full post on dinner is here.
