    May 20, 2014 - SARZI AMADE' TASTING (HOTEL MARIOTT MILANO): Frutto più scuro, più materia, più cilindrata. Naso ancora un po' in riduzione, è ancora molto primario, fragolina rorida nettissima.
    Il palato di contro è più carnoso, erbe aromatiche, liquirizia e olive nere.
    Un vino giocato più sul frutto e meno sui profumi.
    Sicuramente ha un enorme potenziale, ma a mio gusto preferisco la femminilità e la grazia del 2011.

    May 5, 2014 - The 2012 Clos des Lambrays is a truly great wine, surpassing the stunning 2010—and my expectations. An amazingly perfumed bouquet of ripe blackberries, loamy soil, woodsmoke and blackcurrant leaf bursts from the glass, followed by a palate impression of striking intensity but ethereal weightlessness. The longer the wine sits in the glass, the more nuances and details emerge. The balance here is just wonderful and this wine is already very complex, so its drinking window should be gratifyingly broad. (Tasted four times in London and again at the Domaine in February 2014).

    April 15, 2014 - Bottled 2 weeks ago. From yields only 1/3rd of those in 1999. Blackest colour so far by some distance. Insanely ripe and concentrated. Gorgeous nose of violets. Dark, ripe fruit profile on the palate with depth that surpasses anything else tonight. Indeed, unlike any other wine this evening.

    April 15, 2014 - A Lambrays dinner (The Stafford, St James's, London): Bottled two weeks ago. Almost fizzy, juicy, Gevrey like with its earth and fruit, really enticing
