Brad:  Clerc-Milon, Latour, Chabot
Larry:  Latour, Chabot, Vosne-Romanee
Dave L.:  Latour, Chabot, Champagne
A. David:  Latour, Chabot, Clerc-Milon
Debby:  The big reds. #1 the 1979 Latour, #2 1986 Clerc Milon, #3 tie Beringer/Opus. My personal preference is the Beringer but the Opie was a pleasant surprise, holding beautifully. Ah heck, give it to the Opus. I also liked the 1994 Adelaida.
(Haven't gotten Dan's vote.  He obviously doesn't care about his own FoB!)


A. David:  This Clerc-Milon and Beringer make me feel like singing!  Heaven, I'm in Heaven...

Brad:  Is this chardonnay corked?

Debby:  This Adelaida pinot noir is somewhat unusual for pinot noir.

Attendees:  Larry, Gail, Dave L., Cathy, Brad, Dan, Debbie, A. David

My tasting rating (0-10):  9

A solid 9 in spite of the eclectic selection!
