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.

2003 x4

Dinner at Caprice.

2009 Ramonet Bâtard-Montrachet - very fragrant, not too toasty. Good balance between ripeness and acidity, kinda soft on palate, good ripeness and kinda alluring.

2003 Pascal Lachaux Richebourg - served 3½ hours after opening. Very fragrant nose with a little leather, some smoke, a hint of savory notes. Opened up nicely with time and showed more toasty notes.

2003 Marcassin Pinot Noir Marcassin Vineyard - served 3½ hours after opening. Definitely showing more fruit, very fragrant, sweet and alluring. More eucalyptus and mint. Sweet on the palate when tasted with blue cheese. Showing very nicely 5 hours after opening.

2003 Latour - decanted 2 hours after opening, and served 2½ hours after decanting. Very open and fragrant, smoky with cedar notes, very minty, and still showing nice fruit. Amazed that the tannins were still here. Such a classic claret, and just fucking beautiful.

2003 Harlan Estate - decanted 2 hours after opening, and served 2½ hours after decanting. Smoky, but definitely sweeter both on the nose and the palate. Ripe fruit on the palate with more plummy notes. Showed some coconut notes 6½ hours after opening.
