    July 20, 2016 - Oxidized. This is an example of why aged white burgundy is the most overpriced wine in the world. It's not that they aren't great, just that the expected value of these bottles is so low. I don't really get why people roll the dice and pay up at auction anymore. i have to assume that the crowd drinking a lot of them must be so indifferent to $ that they're willing to just take a shot and hope for a good bottle. I'm about 50% on anything white with 7-8+years of age. Would rather buy/drink younger or just drink GG Riesling instead.

    September 5, 2013 - Color : clear green-gold. Nose beautiful complex mix of pear, apple, white flowers with touches of aniseed, honey and jasmin. Palate medium weight with great fruit richness with long palate and strong mouthfeel. Delicious. 93.

    January 4, 2013 - Very good color. Beautiful aroma of apricot and almonds. First sip is almost boring, but then the true character kicks in. touch of bitter, tropical fruits soft and yet powerful. The touch of bitter reminds of ripe grapefruit.

    Needs pairing with food. Paired with a salad of prawn with grapefruit. Was beautiful. Will definitely buy again

    June 5, 2012 - Burgundy 2002 Horisontal Tasting (@ Terkel): Nose: Wine gums, herbal, grass, pineapple, aniseed and butter.
    Palate: Tight and clean with fresh pineapple. A completely different wine than the Leflaive but has an excellent structure.
    A beautiful wine.

    October 28, 2011 - A night of White Burgundy and Champagne at Helsinki (Classic Wine Cellars, Helsinki, Finland): A bit disjointed at first. Gets better with enough air and finds a good balance after about an hour. Very intensive with great fruit and florality. This wine was still on the young side and would probably benefit from at least a few more years in cellar. In the end, though, it did deliver a very nice expression of Puligny-Montrachet.
