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.

87 and 89 Maximin Grünhäuser

Lunch at Yong Fu.

1987 Maximin Grünhäuser Abstberg Kabinett - good acidity, crisp, kinda simple on the palate. Acidity got a little sharper at the end.

Full post on lunch is here.

Drinking at the Sotheby's auction.

2016 Latour à Pomerol - nice vanilla notes, lovely nose of dried herbs, eucalptus, potpourri, and exotic spices. Reasonably sweet on the palate. Still pretty young but drinking well.

Dinner at Wing.

2017 Bérêche Ambonnay Grand Cru, dégorgée juillet 2022 - this was very nice, good acidity with good depth on the palate, not boring at all. There was a little hint of Chinese preserved plum on the nose with a slightly savory profile.

1989 Maximin Grünhäuser Herrenberg Spätlese - slightly sweet on the palate, more rounded on the palate. The nose was nice and ripe, with some orange marmalade along with some white flowers.
