    February 15, 2016 - joli vin frais, à l'acidité basse, doux et fin, avec une belle salinité en finale. Pas le plus complexe des vins de ce producteur mais fort agréable et parfait pour l'occasion. 89-90 pts

    January 9, 2014 - Honeysuckle flavors little bit of petrol on the nose. Could use a little more acidity, but that's quibbling.

    September 5, 2013 - Had with sushi. Pale to medium straw color. A bit on the sweet, overly ripe side of the spectrum, no doubt owing to the excessively hot vintage. Bigger & rounder mouthfeel than usual. Didn't have sufficiently crisp acidity to balance vs the fruit as in better vintages, and didn't have overt minerality or petrol qualities that I love about these wines, but was still pleasant enough as this is a fine winemaker. Certainly has some time left so I look forward to revisiting this one down the road to see how it develops/improves.
