April 23, 2017 - Pale gold. Scents of lemons and limes, pears, pineapples and rocky minerals. In the mouth, razor sharp acidity. Citric and bone dry, with minerals and wet river boulder. Hints of salinity. Precise and focussed. Good fruit volume and depth. Long tart finish. Optimally, I'd cellar for another 3-4 years, to see if it developed additional complexity.

March 1, 2016 - My fault for opening this during a noisy party with kids running around - and then only after finishing a champagne with sushi, then a super Tuscan with prime rib, but a friend asked me to open another white. Immediately upon opening, nose seemed (in comparison to the previous wines) miserly and delicate, and the palate seemed smooth and the finish was complex and long which was the only thing that presented the premier cru quality I expected. Saving the last third of the bottle for the next day, the Meursault Perrieres quality showed through, but it was about finesse and length and delicacy. Not a blockbuster style, very restrained.
October 25, 2013 - Tasted at the Domaine. Clean and linear with honeysuckle notes. Coating on the finish. Fantastic.
