    July 8, 2016 - this bottle rocks. comes out light yellow with a youthful touch of green. I'm not a big fan of 05 white burgs as i find them a bit over ripe but this is straight and lovely line of lemony minerality

    January 8, 2016 - Slightly reduced at the start. Hint of menthol. More restrained than the 02 Lafon Perrieres served alongside. Big, rich, viscous wine on the palate. Very good acidity. Long finish. Put away for awhile and hope it stays sound.

    January 8, 2016 - Decanted for two hours. Good news, no premox. Drank well, and we left this in glasses for a couple of hours and it materially improved. Good wine, should become very good, but not rock star IMHO.

    April 30, 2015 - Med straw yellow, honeysuckle, cool spicy nose and floral aroma. Med conc on palate, acidity bit low maybe need to chill more. Some lime but more floral dominance here, lightly mineral, more finesse than strength, more batard like?

    September 18, 2014 - Burgundy dinner at Grace (Grace Chicago): Horribly oxidized.
