  • Shane's Last Night Dinner (Pok Fu Lam, Hong Kong): Bronzed yellow gold. Nose of eastern spice smoke, melted butter, crushed roasted whole lemons. ....very alluring. Palate is really smooth and mellow medium-level acidity that frames rich, buttery well-integrated oak, good finish of semi-dried whole lemons and super slate and crushed rock minerals. Great richness and reverberant length. Great balance. Lots of life ahead of it. Considerably better than the 1996 that we drank recently....the very appealing smokiness and depth is what characterizes this particular vintage.

  • Old golden color
    very well done, very fine and well balanced wine with a good bit of complexity.
    In the background a whiff of acetic acidity.
    For some it might taste too old; I liked the wine a lot. certainly much more than the preceeding wine from Olivier Leflaive.

    (Lafon Meursault Charmes) It was only lunch, so my guest and I settled on a 1997 Lafon Meursault Charmes. 1997 has become one of my favorite white Burgundy vintages to drink at the moment, and this Lafon once again proved why. It had a fabulous nose that was ‘right there.’ There was incredible musk, sweet butter, caramel and great spice aromas, as well as citrus twists and pine and mahogany traces. Still fresh and just starting to enter that plateau of maturity, the ’97 had great citrus flavors and kisses of earth and minerals. Its buttery flavors were still sweet, and this was excellent stuff, the perfect lunch time solution

    (Comtes Lafon Meursault Charmes) Pale yellow. The nose is less obviously forward than his Genevrières, but finer with extra sophistication. The palate is wide, complex, ripe and long. What more can I say? Less showy but no less quality than the Genevrières.
