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.

Drinking at home.

2007 Olivier Leflaive Meursault Clos du Cromin - toasty with some buttery notes.

1996 Ponsot Clos de la Roche - drank 2 hours after opening. Nose was OK with some leather and some fruits like red currants. Second pour 15 minutes later was more fragrant with some strawberries. More sweetness on the nose later.

2003 Dominus - served 45 minutes after decanting. Sooo smoky at first. After 1 hour and 15 minutes in decanter this showed more pencil lead. Still felt the tannins. Second pour 1½ hours after opening showed lots of tobacco and still plenty of pencil lead, almost Pauillac-like but there was more underlying sweet fruit.

Krug Grande Cuvée, en demi-bouteille - caramelized nose with Chinese licorice and almost desiccated coconut. Not much carbonation now, but lots of marmalade on palate.
