    April 6, 2014 - Paris Club dinner with JK (Chicago): This started out a little subdued and slightly funky, but over a couple hours kept getting better. My last sip was the best. Once it opened, elegant red fruit, dried roses, spice and a potpourri of other nuances on the nose. Fresh and lively on the palate with nice energy and grip on the finish. The complex delicacy of this wine was quite an intellectual experience.

    April 3, 2014 - Eight (Not Angry) Men Drinking Great Wine (Paris Club - Chicago IL): Great color, 2cm ullage. Open 1 hour before serving. Cork ever-so-slightly protruded, very soaked through (thank you, Durand). Started slightly musty and almost a little muddy. Within 15 minutes, fruit started getting more fresh, baking spice emerged with depth and an intensity that expanded over the next couple of hours. Kept getting better. My very last taste (at 2+ hours in glass) seemed slightly muddy, but I think I had just poured myself the dregs from the last of the bottle.

    December 21, 2013 - @ Bagatelle 21.12.13 (Oslo): Klar, dyp rød med svakt falmet kant og hint av oransje toner.
    Dyp, floral, mørk og elegant rødbærdreven nese med milde toner av skogbunn, roseblader og tobakk.
    Bløt, klar og frisk frukt med en slank og transparent eleganse. Tørr og frisk. Spiss syre. Fruktig utgang med svakt bitre toner av nype og tobakk.
    Perfekt moden nå.

    March 2, 2012 - Rare Wine Dinner - quick impressions: Fresh, almost exotic in its complexity, long, beautiful bottle.

    February 22, 2012 - Legends Dinner at La Paulee de San Francisco (Napa Valley Reserve - St. Helena CA): Nose starts with great red fruit, then Asian spice, followed by fresh mushroom aromas. Similar on palate with a great combination of flavors, supported wonderfully by lots of structure. Long and textured. This is an incredibly elegant wine.
