    July 28, 2014 - Dinner with Aldo Vacca: An intriguing nose I could not place of greengage, cheeses and other lactic aromas and some minerals. The bouquet was a little reduced and suggested some evolution. On the palate this was clearly a serious wine, waxy, viscous, powerful and rich with excellent body and mid palate fruit weight. The flavours profile was very complex, including greengages, lemon custard, clotted cream, minerals and honey, again showing some development. Real length, it broadened considerably on the back palate. I don't have much experience with this type of wine but understand it has years of development to come. (Thanks very much Andrew S, an intriguing wine).

    May 8, 2014 - A beautiful wine, packed with pure, sweet, fresh citrus notes, flowers, honey, vanilla and mineral notes. Concentrated, long, fresh and refreshing, this is a great wine to lay down, or drink now.

    March 11, 2014 - Nose of honey, lemon and minerality. Good acidity and balanced taste but you wouldn't take it for a sauvignon blanc dominated wine. But maybe that's the point?!
    This may be a great wine but it's less brilliant than I remembered it from 2y ago. Just as good the day after or even better.

    March 8, 2014 - A private dinner at a friend's (Amsterdam): Paired with Les Plantiers du Haut-Brion 2007. Very pale colour for age, lemony yellow; amazing Sauvignon freshness on the nose, lemon, very youthful, hardly any oak, lifted, exciting; very energetic palate, steely acidity, balanced and elegant, beautiful oak integration; very good length. Drinking beautifully but will last for decades.

    March 3, 2014 - Soft, stony and packed with ripe honeydew melons, lemon peel, lime, vanilla and grapefruit, there is a lot of freshness and lift here. Open it now, or save it for 5-10 years.

    (Domaine de Chevalier Blanc Pessac-Léognan) As with last years sample of the 2003 this is quite closed, showing little more than a faint crispness. The palate clearly shows that this is built for the cellar; balanced, elegantly textured, sappy but reserved, vaguely nettly through the midpalate but rounding out with a flourish of flavour on the finish. Potentially very good indeed.
