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.

Grivot VR and Weightstone

Drinking during hotel quarantine in Hong Kong.

WE by Weightstone Pét-Nat W° 2 - 64% Mehone, 29% Kyoho, 7% Black Queen. O-M-G. What have I done?! This was practically undrinkable. Fizzy as expected, but this smelled like manure. Minerally and soapy, with sweet candy notes on top of acidity. The stenth faded a little after a few minutes, but this still tasted like bubbly cough syrup. Sankala called it "shit-flavored soda". I tried to drink more of it, but chose to pour half the bottle down the drain.

2017 Jean-Grivot Vosne-Romanée - nose of leather, a little soapy, violet, fruit was very ripe and almost jammy. Still got the tannins, of course. Pretty nice.

Full post on the day is here.
