Chez Lyon in Eugene, OR
Tasted Saturday, December 8, 2012 by Grinner with 256 views
Hard to believe we've had 100 of these gatherings since 1997. The theme HAD to be 100 points, or nearly so, with 100+ $$ price tags. I wanted at least a modest variety of locations and ages, but I gotta say I'm highly biased!! In general: I don't do Burgundy or Italy, so I had to go with what I got. The wines were all decanted for 2 hours or more. We had a 2001 Argyle Extended Tirage sparkler open while we were gathering and it remains fantastic-- no specific notes but in the 92-94 pt range.
served with 2 types of pate and some roquefort-- WOW!
served with some cheesecake and stilton options
A crazy good tasting... I'll probably never open 10 bottles like that again!
