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.

Silex and Champagne

Dinner at Neighborhood.

2008 Didier Dagueneau Silex - the nose was definitely oxidized and caramelized, as I had feared, with notes of pineapple jam. The acidity was still strong on the palate, though, and in fact it was pretty grippy. The second pour, after chilling for around half an hour, was leaner on the palate. With the temperature colder, this was drinking pretty niccely now.

Drinks at the Pinnacle.

2014 Agrapart Vénus, dégorgée en Mai 2020 - I know this is a blanc de blancs AND a brut nature but it was still very dry on the palate. Nose was really fragrant with a little woodsy notes.

Chavost Rosé de Saignée - lots of redcurrants and cranberries, but the palate was flat and the finish short. Loved the color.

2002 Bruno Paillard Nec Plus Ultra, dégorgée en Septembre 2014 - lovely nose of minerals with salted plum and marmalade. Nice depth and complexity on the palate. Drinking pretty well.

Full post on the evening is here.
