Nice W&A!

Last night with RobS, vinoevelo and a buddy at the Clove Club pop-up at Grey's Gardens.

1995 Charles Heidsieck Blanc des Millenaires - started with a prominent sulfur note that blew off and turned into something reminiscent of a grand cru burg

NV Selosse Initial (disgorged 2006) - initially fantastic but faded quickly

1998 Muller-Catoir Haardter Muskateller Trocken
1999 Produttori del Barbaresco Moccagatta - gorgeous, in a great place. No rush.
1989 Leoville Las Cases - drank much better than previous bottles. Ready and delicious.

Overall a fantastic food and wine night. I thought some of the dishes were memorable and executed with precision while others were duds and just weird.

I saw the menu and on paper it looked awesome. Surprised there were duds/weird dishes given the pedigree of the two chefs. Still, it sounds like a it was a one-of-a-kind, never-to-be-repeated evening.
