    January 15, 2015 - Flickinger Tasting at The Casino (Chicago, IL): From a double magnum #baller. Holy crap, this thing is sulphured -- no doubt the format doesn't help either. Lots and lots of sulphur, but under that is a very chiseled and steely nose with some faint grapefruit notes. The palate is just as massive, with a very dense and steely character and acidity that's just razor sharp. Very difficult to approach now for just drinking (well, that's probably because of the format), this is a wine that ought to make you sit down and concentrate on it. Without a doubt Henri Boillot is making some of the most convincing affordable examples of white Burgundy on the market these days.

    December 30, 2014 - This was superb. Prominent oak up front but very polished at that and quickly dissipated. Huge nose of lemon, nectarines, chopped herbs, and vanilla. Rich and mouth-coating on the palate but leaving a powerful, stony-mineral impression. Paired beautifully with a big seafood spread.

    November 12, 2014 - From memory. Straw colored. Very rich but fresh an energetic. Enjoyed with 5 friends. Eye brows went up in a very positive way when people drank this. Rich and seamless. White peach, stones and truffle. We drank it before dinner while cooking and were not able to concentrate as much as would have liked. Ah well. My only bottle and now it is gone. Really excellent Chardonnay.

    October 21, 2014 - Very young...minerality, salinity, beautiful acidity, gooseberries, tarragon, stone fruit... Lovely wine with saffron risotto, pan seared scallops.

    October 4, 2014 - Some struck match to the aroma at first then its all pure white peach and citrus. It had perfect shape in the mouth with a fruit sweet heart and rigid mineral spine. There is an unctuous feel to the wine but it is by no means heavy and you feel all of the precision and detail. Very close to Grand Cru quality for mine.
