Default TN: 1998 Poujeaux

We were relieved yesterday when we saw Dave's flight had taken off
from London (where he had been stuck for 5 days). Before Betsy left
for airport, we had a nice dinner of roast chicken, choy sum, and a
barley/root vegetable soup. Wine was the 1998 Poujeaux (Haut Medoc).
Decanted about 45 minutes before dinner. Good body, moderate acidity,
tannins are still there but softening. Black plums and currants, a
little leather. Quite pleasant almost-mature claret, nothing exciting
but quite comfy. B+/B

Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent
wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. 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.
