    April 28, 2016 - Well made but still a bit sharp, hard. Needs more time in the cellar. The other 2012 Fevres are easier to drink. The Vaulorent benefits from a decant, with sharp lemon curd, citrus zest, vibrancy, and body. Just needs time. Try again in 2017.

    December 31, 2015 - Medium bodied, with a nice unctuous mouthfeel. Clean flavors, perfectly balanced, delicious. Went well with lobster.

    November 6, 2015 - PopnPour, tasted over 2 hrs
    -translucent pale gold-green
    -matchstick/reduction, intense citrus ocean
    -higher acidity, med weight explosively sappy intensity with focused yet quite complex citrus saline truffle elements and respectable finish
    -youthfully intense that is lovely now for its sheer energy and plenty of years of upside if it avoids the premox pox

    December 12, 2014 - HDH auction tasting at Tru; 12/12/2014-12/13/2014 (Chicago, IL): Very pale colour. Lots of flint and smoke on the nose -- not showing any fruit at all right now. The palate is quite austere as well, showing the same stone qualities, as well as a good dose of tart lemon. There is a bit of oak on show, but it isn't annoying or loud at all.

    November 4, 2014 - Altra Borgogna: Mineralità debordante, pompelmo, anice, freddo e scaltro. Bocca splendida, tattile, il mare lunghissimo, quasi sabbioso nella sua mineralità.
