Wine dinner

Last Friday I went to a BYOB dinner thrown by Executive Wine Seminars at Tribeca Grill. The food was a buffet of duck, steak, salmon, and a whole roast pig. There was a mountain of cheese, and a bit of pasta and salad seemingly as an afterthought. The wine was the attraction; the list that follows is far from complete (and not in order) but represents some of what I was able to get a glass of. Needless to say my notes are incomplete and decreasingly legible for some reason.

2002 Serene Chardonnay
Peter Michael Chardonnay (vintage?)
1992 Marcassin Chardonnay (huge and yummy- very California)
2000 Baumard Savennières

1997 Voerzio Brunate
2000 Lamborghini (young, but great)
2001 Serpico (young, but great)
2000 Dal Forno Valpolicella (Mary's offering- very good)

1998 Vega Sicilia Valbuena (my offering, and awesome)

1975 Phelps Insignia
1985 Phelps Insignia

1989 Beaucastel Hommage à J. Perrin (fabulous)

1994 Clos Martinet
1990 Rousseau Chambertin (!)
1985 Prieur Musigny (really good)
1996 Bouchard Corton-Charlemagne
Chassagne Montrachet Gagnard (vintage?)

1995 Ducru Beaucaillou
1988 Latour
1982 Lynch Bages (a revelation)
1989 Haut Brion
1982 Pichon Baron
1986 Leoville las Cases
1982 Mouton Rothschild
1979 Palmer in Jeroboam (still young, funky, but by this point my taster was impaired)

I MISSED THE KRUG CLOS DU MESNIL 81! We were told that it was for a toast, and then noticed that it was gone. Oh well.

After we had a glass of Springbank Longrow which was totally unnecessary but did taste like a roaring fire.
