Re: TN: Richebourg + RSV Dinner, with a Monty and a La Tache

I haven't had a 96 LT in a while, but your notes sound similar to my impression of the wine. Hopefully it will open up a bit more. The 2001 H-N wines are favorites of mine also. Great notes and a nice night. Thanks

Nice notes, and I'm especially glad to hear about the 85 Leroy Chambertin. The 78 Armand Pommard Epeneaux sounds amazing. Alan Weinberg and I did an 80 vs 85 Ponsot Clos de la Roche night and both were as incredible as your 80 sounds.

Tom - I had a sip that was left in the bottle the next day and it was musty and certainly not what a 96 Dom should be. All that, I do prefer my Champagne younger than older, fresher than oxidized. I'll check out my next bottle of 96 Dom soon and report back.

I agree with John Stimson - "Rousseau Gevrey-Chamb. 'CSJ'--beautiful and seductively ready to enjoy." I had this a couple weeks ago and it was truly delicious, but for my taste it has many years to go to develop the secondary and tertiary flavors that I like.
