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.

French at the Chairman

Dinner at The Chairman.

Krug Grande Cuvée, fifth generation label, (163ème Édition), ID 314050 - very nice and showing that it has mellowed with some age. Good and toasty nose.

1990 Tertre Roteboeuf - back in the bottle after decanting for 30 minutes, and drank about 1½ hours after decanting. Very minty, smoky, very soft on the palate and almost a little flat. Definitely on the downhill slide.

2017 Justin Girardin Corton-Charlemagne - fragrant and floral nose. Kinda soft on the palate.

1982 Talbot - drank about 1½ hours after decanting. Nose was very Saint-Julien, a little smoky, a little savory now, slightly grassy, almost a hint of brett.

1989 Lynch-Bages - drank about 1½ hours after decanting. Smoky, nose definitely very Pauillac, with grilled meats but still got the fruit underneath. Drinking pretty nicely.

2016 Cos d'Estournel Blanc - a little flint on the nose, oily on the palate, still got the acidity.

2015 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Auslese, from half-bottle - so floral with orange blossom, honey, and a little acetone. More acidity on the palate followed by a little sweetness and roundness.
