    December 11, 2014 - Spectacular bottle for this level. Not blind to me, as I brought it as a ringer to a 2012 burg tasting. IMO, despite being one of the less expensive wines on the table, it was the best. A turn riper and sweeter than the burgs - but not out of place - with pure red fruit, loads of florals, and great concentration for such a light bodied wine. Lively acid - even a prickle of petillant? Very similar to a top notch 2009 burg. Can't wait to see how this ages. Best Littorai Larmes I've ever had.

    October 19, 2014 - Almost quaffable at 13.1%. Light, but by no means thin...finesseful. Floral, rose & violet, then cherry. Dusty tannin. If tasting blind, I might've guessed Moulin-à-Vent before CA Pinot. Evolved a bit over the two hours, but never really took on any significant depth.

    September 26, 2014 - Everything about this wines exudes beauty. Nose of soft spring flowers with strawberries and red raspberries. A mid to light weight wine with tremendous depth. The fruits controled the ride; some interesting notes of tea leaf and baking spice. It's balance is deft. Super interesting mid-palate and the tannins seem to lie just beneath the blanket of red fruits and they are complicated and near-weightless. Acidity just perfect. As food arrived this proves that it is the darling of the table. As this sat it showed more presence. Finish long, true and still fresh and vibrant. Wow. If you own this, consider yourself lucky.
