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.

1981 Taittinger

Drinks and snacks at Caprice.

1981 Taittinger Collection - nose was the more toasty of the pair, almost coffee-like. Initially we thought this was un petit bouchonée but in the end we thought it was just closed. Good acidity on the palate. This turned really nice after it opened up some 30 minutes in, with caramel on the nose.

1981 Taittinger Comte de Champagne Blanc de Blancs - nose of marmalade, a little flinty, Chinese salted plum with that savory profile, got a little more oxidized. Very lovely.

These two made a very nice pair.

1994 d'Yquem, en imperial - opened for about a week. Tons of acetone, definitely some saffron. Good sweetness on the palate but still got the acidity.

Full post on the evening is here.
