Community Tasting Notes 96

    October 23, 2021 - Deep yellow, light mouse with small bubbles. Pear, cider, apple, and some vanilla.

    In the mouth, the above flavors were joined by white stone. It firmed up nicely to show very good length and acidity.

    This is at its peak for my taste. Enjoy!

    September 8, 2021 - Epic Bordeaux for an Epic Birthday!; 9/1/2021-9/12/2021 (Paris & Bordeaux): Not every day that you are drinking 90's Salon on back to back days but life is pretty good. This was showing a touch more age than I would have expected. It's got that vanilla but less exaggerated. Bright. Maybe a bit more toast? But drinking nicely.

    June 11, 2021 - KYD BYO (Koan): The core of the green apple fruit is still crisp and acidic. It has opened up but it is truly still a very young wine. There is a touch of almond bitterness in the long refreshing aftertaste.
    It is so amazing that the youthfulness is still present. The wine just jumps from the glass and is truly a legendary wine.
    Absolutely stunning!!

    April 15, 2021 - Old Champagne so interesting. Bready, yeasty, nutty, savory fruit. Really, really fine bubbles that could barely be seen but definitely felt in the mouth. If tiny bubble are an indicator of quality, this was the best I've ever had. Probably would be higher scoring for me but not sure the incremental enjoyment justifies the price.

    March 15, 2021 - Quite a bit more advanced than the ’96 next to it, showing some mushroom and toast development. The fruit profile is gently candied and it has power and grace, and lovely shape.
