Tried that myself once.... Black hands and stayed up all night. Should have gone for the caffeine free varietal.
You didn't have enough wine with it then
More seriously, there isn't actually all that much coffee per steak based on the recipe I use. Would work out to be the equivalent of roughly one quarter of the coffee used for a single shot espresso.
What was the Vin Jaune like?
It was good, but honestly, probably the poorest vin jaune I've tried. Again, nothing wrong with it at all. Just didn't quite have any wow factor for me. It was over shadowed by the Domaine de Montbourgeau which was also made in the vin jaune style, just bottled early. This showed much more flor, sherry and nuttiness with better acidity.
The vin jaune was also priced accordingly at just over $70 at Dan's. You'd be looking at upwards of $120 normally for a vin jaune in AU. So given the price point, I'd say it was priced appropriately for the quality.
