Last night at Amali with g-man, winedrmike, their better halves, and other wine friends:
1999 Delamotte Collection Blanc de Blanc
NV Vilmart Cuvée Rubis
1969 Mathieu Cesaire Chateaneuf du Pape
1987 ZD Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon
1989 Lynch Bages
1989 Leoville Poyferre
1996 Diamond Creek Horizontal (Volcanic Hill, Red Rock Terrace, Gravelly Meadow, Lake)
What a terrific night to celebrate a birthday with great company. The '69 CdP was a treat and was surprisingly alive.
All the wines were drinking really well if not beautifully well. Delamotte, Dominus, Lynch Bages, and Lake were outstanding. Sadly the first bottle of Lake was corked.
