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.

Chavost and BOND

Dinner at Louise.

JM Sélèque Solessence, dégorgée septembre 2021 - kinda closed at first, opened to be opulent, with a tiny bit of flint on the nose and reasonable ripeness on the palate. Acidity was there starting from mid-palate after about 30 minutes in the glass. Opened further to show a little marmalade, and another 10 minutes later this was more grippy on the finish.

2019 Chavost Coteaux Champenois Blanc - decanted and served right away. Very, very heavy toast... actually I joked that I felt like I was chomping on a plank of toasted oak. Flint, really big and powerful on the palate. With lots of green apple, surprisingly. Grippy on the palate. Really needs time to mellow out a little.

2001 BOND Melbury - served 1 hour after decanting. Very sweet nose with plenty of coconut butter, tropical and exotic nose, and also vanilla oak. First few sips still felt kinda tannic. Softened up to drink very nicely, and showing its elegance. Pretty minty, too.
