I've been looking at wines to take on vacation. I stood up 2 1999 Premier Cru Burgundies. One has considerable sediment; the other has virtually none. Go figure.


Just one more sip.

Wineplease, I had the 1979 Margaux in 2008. It's obviously beyond it's peak, but still enjoyable. The fruit was fading but it still had a bit of tannins. Not a stellar Margaux, but worth opening. It probably won't stand up to any food. Looking forward to your notes.

I look forward to your notes. I've had this wine 11 times and one left. It's been great and showed no signs of tiring at last tasting.


Just one more sip.

Really sorry to hear that, Dok. I had the wine 4 times but the last bottle 15-20 years ago. We did one in a series of verticals comparing 1962 and 1955. We did another in a 1955 First Growth horizontal. One we did at a French restaurant where the chef/owner prepared a special meal for four or us, along with a 1971 Lafite. The last we had at a dinner on our home. All four were wonderful.


Just one more sip.

Ditto! Good to see you on your stop through town VinT. I'll set something up a little, um, nicer (sans fruit flies) next time you're through.

I kind of liked 'em. They helped me finally understand the phrase 'crunchy tannins'. Big Grin

DoktaP, sorry for the late reply.
I post my note on the tasting notes. I tend to agree with you that the fruit was fading. Pretty much gone in my opinion. However, it's still an enjoyable wine. The finish was still long and smooth.
