La Mission Haut Brion and Dom Perignon
Wines from last night. Bordeaux made a strong appearance with the 1985 La Mission Haut Brion and 1988 Cos d’Estournel. And of course we had to have our daily Dom Perignon...
The 1985 La Mission was dry and dusty showing barnyard, dry autumn leaves, clove, pencil shavings, and dried black cherry. The mouth feel was soft and velvety with a long finish of dark fruit and cigar wrappings.
The 1988 Cos was very earthy as well with more red fruit showing dried red cranberry and red currant. While the mouthfeel was soft it was a little more rugged than the La Mission and not quite as polished.
The duo of 92 DP was awesome as always. We followed them up with a 1980 that was honied with a palate that makes you want to cuddle up with your loved one and stair into a fireplace for eternity.
Lastly we popped the 2004 Krug that was surprisingly approachable considering how young it was... powerful brioche with apricot and white peach. A powerhouse champagne that was the polar opposite of the Dom Perignon.
