WTN: couple '88s for Dave's 30th at Noreetuh

by Dale Williams » Fri Aug 17, 2018 2:56 pm

Stepson David arrived from London/Rome Tuesday on way back to Berkeley, his birthday is today. We wanted a family celebration but Betsy’s sister couldn’t do today, so we all went to Nooretuh in East Village Wednesday. Started with couple orders of the musubi sampler, so we each got pork jowl musubi, spam musubi, and spicy tuna musubi. I had the silken tofu with uni & ikura, followed by the waygu beef with fried rice and radishes. Others had chicory salad with papaya, tuna poke, spaghetti with unim five-spice pork chop with spätzle. Desserts included
king's Hawaiian bread pudding and pineapple upside down cake. Everyone enjoyed food. Service was great as well.

1988 Jadot (Duc de Magenta) “Clos de la Garenne” Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru

I thought this was definitely more mature than a bottle last year, but not at all tired. Honied oak accents over pear fruit, good acids, minerally finish. B+/A-

1988 Jadot Ruchottes-Chambertin

Still some slightly hard tannin, rather tart cranberry/raspberry fruit,coffee, bacon. Enjoyed more with some air. Don’t think I would have pegged for Grand Cru, but nice 30 year old Burg with that slightly tough ‘88 style. B+


Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent wine, B a good wine, C drinkable. Anything below C means I wouldn't drink at a party where it was only choice.Furthermore, I offer no promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.
