Reply to "January 2019 - What Are You Drinking?"

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 Dominus

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.
