    December 24, 2014 - Brioche and granny smith apple with just hints of oxidative mature notes. Palate here is fresh with lots of lemony acidity on the finish. Drinking really well now and the acidity will keep this going for a long time.

    December 6, 2014 - Much better than bottles I've had previously (and quite some time ago). Not sure how this will end up, but it seems to be developing nicely.

    November 30, 2014 - 金黄色,气泡丰满细腻,持续1.5小时气泡无压力,初入杯有青柠、白花、烤面包香气,其后,持续白花、烤面包、成熟水果香气。

    November 14, 2014 - 4 Days 4 Great Events and lots of Parker Points; 11/14/2014-11/18/2014 (Paris & London): Dark golden in colour. Open on the nose, rich fruit, ripe, very toasty brioche, light honey note. Well round on the palate and well aged, feel the part at this stage and we would dare say it's at its peak now . Such a beautiful wine. 94

    Mt. Sinai Benefit, 3/9/2007 93 points

    (Krug) welcomed us to the Four Seasons courtesy of Krug, and it was clean and crisp, fresh and pleasant but lighter than expected. There was good balance in the mouth and a touch of meat to go with its tangy Krug flavors

    (Krug) A very powerful nose, oaky and stony, oiled wood, this already seems like a powerhouse of a wine. Very firm on the palate, with lots of depth, very broad style, showing good depth and promise. Very stylish but very primary and immature, very indrawn and firm. It needs considerable cellar time, but rest assured this will be very impressive when mature.
