Special night, special wines, with Racer117, JulieD, Mrs. S.
- 1989 Krug Champagne — deep gold, honey, roasted pear, ginger, extremely rich and smooth, long finish, must be in its prime; one of the 2 or 3 finest Champagnes I’ve been fortunate enough to drink; really hard to finish the last glass
- 1989 Chateau Malescot St. Exupéry (Margaux) — delicious cassis, basil leaf, black pepper, hints of mineral, silky, medium-long finish; not a powerhouse but harmonious and balanced; might still have a couple good years ahead of it
- 1989 Domaine Bourillon-Dorléans Vouvray Molleux Château-Chevrier — a Loire beauty, papaya, mango, pineapple, casaba melon, all swirling in a moderately sweet, lightweight mouthful of silky intensity, very long finish, very good acidity; killer with a raspberry financier cake
with good friends... 😀
Thanks for the notes, Seaq. I've always been a huge fan of the 1989 Krug. Had several spirited conversations with w+a on the merits of the 1988 vs. 1989 Krugs. He says 1988. I say 1989. Only one of us is correct. Guess who?
