    May 27, 2012 - Bright yellow gold this faithfully stored specimen delivered with fresh peach and floral aromas and flavors on a minerally alcoholic bed.

    January 2, 2012 - Aromas of orange, orange peel and lemon peel with some summer flowers and still spice from new oak. Big, fat fruit comes through on the palate with plenty of spice. Still quite alive at over a decade, although probably a bit shorter than it was a few years back. Quite enjoyable, but I really couldn't imagine ever mistaking this for Grand Cru Burgundy.

    December 18, 2011 - Very much like a fine Mersault. This is drinking very nicely.

    December 17, 2011 - A deep golden color with nice minerality and acidity. It has stood the test of time.

    November 25, 2011 - Wolflicks Thanksgiving Dinner - wife - loved it. A dark gold in the glass showing minerals on the nose. Very smooth and complex for a white. I enjoyed this one as well! Very well made and has stood up to the test of time!
