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.

1943 trio

Dinner at Ya Ge in Taipei.

1943 Cheval Blanc, Eschenauer bottling - level was mid- to low-shoulder, much worse than another bottle opened in 2017. Nose was still very fragrant, with leather, animal notes, along with rose petals and other floral notes. Fairly light in terms of body once the sediment is discounted, but the fragrance was very lovely.

1943 Mouton-Rothschild, from Sotheby's Sale May 2016, Wines from the Cellars of William I. Koch - a bit more leather on the nose, minty, definitely more cigar notes, and certainly tastes like a Pauillac. Condition was still fairly good after nearly 80 years.

1943 Sisqueille Rivesaltes, mis en bouteille 2012 - kinda nutty, a little coffee, almost, and certainly honey.

Full post on dinner is here.
