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.

2000 trio

Drinking at a friend's home.

It's always nice to taste these together, blind. Decanted for 10 minutes before pouring back to the bottle and stoppered for about 1 hour before serving.

2000 Clos Badon - more smoky with a bigger nose of toast. Also a little more earthy, followed by a bit more wood. Definitely more grippy on the palate thanks to the tannins.

2000 L'Interdit de Clos Badon - good fruit and a little ripe now, with plenty of smoke and tobacco. Showing very well now and the nose was very fragrant, with a little woodsy notes. Clearly more elegant of the pair.

2000 Figeac - served after more than an hour in decanter. This was just beautiful, with a really big toasty nose, with leather and grassy notes along with a bit of earth and a hint of minerals. The best wine of the evening.

2017 Pégau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge Cuvée Réserve - showing some leather and smoke.
