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.

French and sake

Dinner at a friend's home.

2002 Deutz Cuvée William Deutz - very fragrant nose and there was plenty of caramelized sugar. Pretty ripe on the palate and I love the maturity and depth of the wine.

2018 Isojiman Daiginjo 28 Nobilmente - seimaibuai of 28%. Nice and sweet on the attack, pretty round on the palate, a little dry mid-palate, and slightly fermented, with a long finish. Classic nose of banana. A pleasure to drink.

1998 Denis Mortet Gevrey-Chambertin Combe-du-Dessus - started drinking 30 minutes after decanting. Nice and toasty nose, and while it was lovely this was not as clean and floral, but more meaty. Still drinking very nicely.

2009 Pontet-Canet - drank 20 minutes after decanting. Really ripe and jammy on the nose, highly extracted, woodsy, and almost a little green capsicum. After an hour in decanter this was still going strong, of course, and still got plenty of woodsy notes.
