    February 28, 2017 - 50th Birthday Winefoolishness (Chicago, IL): A revelatory wine that was my first glimpse at 50+ year old White Burgundy. First off, there is absolutely no signs of any oxidation whatsoever. W.O.W. nose that is huge with tertiary notes of smoke, meat and sweat interwoven with mature white fruit. Almost Syrah like in its meatiness. The palate is similarly youthful and meaty. Good fresh acids keep the wine persistent. Held in the glass for an hour. Impressive.

    February 28, 2017 - 50th Birthday Celebration Dinner with Wine (Hughes House - Chicago IL): Popped and poured. Baked apple with sweet and savory spice. Got off to a slow start but this really opened up and lengthened with 5+ minutes in glass. Aromas and flavors kept getting more complex and powerful over the next 15-20 minutes, at which point it started to show its age. Wonderful.

    March 14, 2014 - Orangey color. Funky at first, but when that passed it was replaced by a lot of caramel, orange, grapefruit, apricot and a touch of band-aid on a very nice nose. The caramel is the very fatty kind that reminds me of the caramel sense you get from a nice jamon iberico de bellota. Soft, lovely mouthfeel, with excellent acidity remaining and citrus fruit all over the palate. Surprisingly long finish. Really great given the bottle's age. These certainly have some life left in them.

    October 20, 2012 - 50th Birthday Celebration Dinner with Wine (Chez Schmidt - Chicago IL): Started with a bit of sulfur, which is good, having kept this wine wonderfully fresh. Huge orchard fruit, slightly nutty, shockingly fresh and charming, lots of power. If tasted blind, I'd have thought this 20 years younger.

    September 25, 2012 - Deep yellow. Advanced with some apricot and apple in the nose. Lush with good fruit and some acid remaining. 93 pts.
