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.

3 magnums

Lunch at Sushi Saito in Tokyo.

Krug Grande Cuvée, fifth generation label, (159ème Édition), ID 411037, en magnum - really awesome, absolutely beautiful nose with lots of toast, brioche, and a little honey. After almost 1½ hours this was amazing, with notes that were almost like coffee. So, soooo happy I brought this.

Charles Heidsieck Private Reserve, ca. 1970, en magnum - a little savory with that salted plum nose I love so much. A little mineral. Drinking very nicely, too.

1996 Jean-Michel Gaunoux Corton Renardes, en magnum - nice on the nose with eucalyptus. Not lking the tannins being left on my tongue, though...

Full post on lunch is here.
