    January 23, 2015 - From 375 ml bottle. Ripe apple and some peach. Lush start, well textured middle to finish. Very good concentration for its level.

    January 10, 2015 - Enticing tropical aromas, caramel & pineapple, nice smokiness & minerality, with good acidity on finish.

    January 4, 2015 - Drank all 12 bottles in the case over the last 6 months. All pristine and lovely. A bit of dark puligny spice in a very taut, mineral style. Very nice.

    August 17, 2014 - Light golden yellow, clear.
    A certain richness on the nose, but also with a subtle green streak. Butter! But also fruit freshness (pineapple?). Weird, in a sense, and not quite to my liking. Especially on day two, I thought the weirdness was due to the oak.
    On the palate it is weightless, with beautiful tension. It has a texture of fine sand (again tannins from the oak?). Slightly bitter touch on the finish, which is all on lemon zest. Quite long.
    I did not completely enjoy it now, but if the oak integrates well (meaning: the nose finds its balance and the tannins soften) it might become very nice.

    August 3, 2014 - Light yellow. Nose opens with fresh cut pear, also chalk/saline, apple, citrus, floral. Palate has medium fruit with an acidity that builds towards tartness, but is headed off by sweet-fruit midpalate which remains until finish. Well poised, lean, mineral and balanced. Had on the deck with pan seared/sauteed red snapper - we both though this was a great match and a terrific village wine.
