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.

20 years of Altaya

20th anniversary dinner for Altaya Wines, at M+ Museum.

2012 Salon - fragrant, slight hint of toast, a hint of caramelized sugar. Good acidity on the palate but not too sharp, good depth on the palate with a long finish.

2011 Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux, en magnum - lovely toasty nose, flinty, a little pipi de chat. Drinking beautifully.

2011 Cheval Blanc - wow! Much riper and sweet and jammy than expected. Smoky, and still kinda tannic.

2011 Margaux - pretty smoky, more lean, but so fragrant and alluring after opening up. Lots of woodsy notes.

2001 Lafite-Rothschild - smoke, pencil lead, and woodsy notes, so elegant. Surprised by the presence of some tannins here still.

2001 Mouton-Rothschild, en magnum - much more open compared to the Lafite, with a lovely and fragrant nose.

2001 Dominus - smoky with a little green pepper.
