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.

Hugel and Henri Bonneau

Dinner at Moon Bay.

2003 Henri Bonneau Cuvée Marie Beurrier, en magnum - double decanted 1½ hours prior to serving. Nose showed tons of ripe fruit like blackcurrants. Once served the nose showed more leather and a slight stinkiness. A little savory on the palate. Half an hour after serving the wine showed lovely woodsy notes. About 3 hours after decanting the wine definitely had peaked and the fruity notes were no longer prominent or noticeable.

2011 Hugel Gewurztraminer Grossi Laüe - pretty floral, definitely lots of lychee. Palate was kinda off-dry and lightly sweet.
