Right after opening:

Quite mute, only showing hints of nose and a little bitter on the palate, so decided to pour the wine into the decanter

After half an hour:

Opened brilliantly, great nose of butterscotch, peanut butter, apple and stonefruit, together with a hint of lemon and petrol. Quite smooth on the palate, and going well with the kind crab and the red pasta (surprise surprise!!).

Still yet to reach its peak and will keep the remaining bottles on hold for a couple years at least.

An absolutely exquisite wine. Even my wife who does not care for white wine that much said "that was the wine of the night", and that's putting it up against a 1998 Quilceda Creek CS and a 2008 St Innocent Freedom Hill PN. Paired it with Crab Cakes and fresh tomatoes and mozzarella. Glad we have 2 more. The wine is so well balanced, such a succulent nose and flavors that just explode on the palate.

Really outstanding. In the future, I would decant this for 30-60 minutes, but it was still great. This has an uncanny ability to push right up to the line of being over the top, but pulls back just in time to remain elegant and refined. It is very full bodied, but not sloppy. It hints at a wide array of lush tropical fruits; pineapple, mango and a slight banana note, but never gets candied or artificial tasting. There is a minerality on the finish that hold everything together. As full bodied as this is, it is very versatile and could pair with a huge array of foods. It didn't overpower raw kampachi, yet was fine with heavier cream sauces.

Very tempting bouquet with yellow fruits. On the palate a concentrated beauty with a lot of everything. Ripe and soft, creamy yellow fruits, honey, vanilla, a beautiful balance between sweetness and acidity and a great length. A real Beauty!

I have drunk all six of my bottles in the privacy of my own home over 2 years and no two have been the same.
I am not even going to describe this bottle as I have no idea against what standard I'm supposed to compare it!
Just to say this example was a good if not great quality wine but an alarming colour (see photo with decanter) although not oxidised.
I won't be buying this again - too inconsistent and poor value as a result.

Dark butterscotch color. Nutty, Marzipan and stone fruits on nose and palate with nice glycerine mouthfeel. Tight out of bottle, but did open up as it warmed and with some air. Silky in mouth. Yummy, but still not like the one shared back in 09, that was an epiphany for me for white rhones. Still have a 2000 in the cellar.

certainly too young, fullbodied with a musculin structure,had it together with a lot of Rieslings, a like it, nuts, marzipan, creamy, long aftertaste, perfect to food, acidity is balanced to the fruit, will wait ten more years to get the whole package

Mostly Northern Rhone dinner (The Grill Room at Capella Hotel Georgetown): A big scale wine, a big bad boy. Pitted yellow fruits, pineapple, bubble yum, smoke and mineral. Quite fresh, unctuous, noticeable pineapple soda like palate impression, bright acidity and mineral and long finish. This has come together nicely, showing better harmony. Really enjoyable. If you like SQN whites, your score will be at least a few points higher.

Souper avec Laurent Charvin: prise II: Un nez parfumé, intriguant, de fruit exotique, qui évoque presque le viognier (pas la bouche cependant).
La bouche est grasse, équilibrée, avec une finale très longue. C'est un vin profond et complexe, aux saveurs pénétrantes, qui conserve une grâce et reste dénué de toute lourdeur ou trace d'alcool.

J'étais sur une Grange des Pères.... Grand vin. 95 pts

Where to start? Rich and delicious so many ways at so many temperatures throughout the meal. Beautiful light gold in the glass, with lemon, apple, pear, even pineapple with spice offset with some minerality and even oak. took a flier opening a bottle with sushi & beef teriyaki; a tough match. What a fun ride! There is enough acid that when your palate says sweetness and your head says dry, you might just stop thinking and enjoy. Long gorgeous finish. Take years to enjoy.

Great. Exactly what I hoped for from a aged white rhone. And held up very well throughout the 48 hrs and two vacuum pumps after opening.

An evening with Ib B (Frederiksberg): Oxidized notes, certainly, but there is a lot going on underneath; minerals, a sense of acidity, garrigue, locale. A good wine, certainly, though I am still not sure, I would pay the price to stock this. Drink up or hold? –I have no idea. 91?

Served slightly chilled. Vibrant bouquet of lemon peel, honeysuckle, apricot, pear, hazelnut and nutmeg. Pear, apricot, lemon, hazelnut and wet stone on the palate leads to a very long, smooth finish. Rich and layered texture with excellent acidic balance. A classic Roussanne and a great white wine. Paired with a crawfish boil.

From memory, consumed last evening. I popped my last bottle about 15 years ago at a tasting. The wine was undrinkable, and we all believed, unredeemable. Glad I sat on my other bottles. Today, this wine is fabulous and beautiful. Deep golden hue. Explosive, complex bouquet. Not at all maderized or showing its age. Still great structure, refreshing, and balanced. A wide panoply of scents and flavors. Like nothing I've ever tasted.

This was nicely aged, very aromatic with fantastic truffle and old Champagne aromas. Rich and smooth - more like olive oil than wine in texture. Fascinating in such a tasting portion but so low in acidity that I wonder if I would enjoy it this much with dinner and a bigger portion of wine?

I had the -07 a few years ago and I wounder if I was a bit early.

Had this on my 26th birthday and did not take any notes. It was a bit closed. Quite shy nose, but on the palate I remember how good this is. That honey melon fatness, that creamy texture and in the same way has that lovely stony minerals. Classic with elegance.

This is personality, something unique. The next time I will open one will not be before 2-3 years.

Day before holiday "DBH" lunch with JL, TH and Ms Han (Cipriani, Hong Kong): JL who brought this bottle thought it was oxidised but I disagree. And this is not just because I have low sensitivity for oxidation. It's because many CDP whites do exactly this -- they're perfectly fine for first 6-10 years then go through a strange brownish oxidised phase for a decade or two before reemerging nice and clear, a bit more complex but otherwise just fine. (Or so goes the theory...) The trouble is we don't know exactly when this 1990 VV will awake from its brownish slumber... But when does it could be stellar. So those of you out there who have a few bottles, please hang on to them and try one in 5 years. For the time being it's not bad, some charming notes of pear, lychees, dried flowers; more than drinkable!

Fantastic wine. Nice medium yellow color. Smells citrus, rubber, honey, peaches, lichies. Perfect balance with round taste of citrus, grass, peach, peppar and finishing with round vanilia & roasted nuts aftertaste coming from the oak. Long, rich, intense...marvellous.
