    February 2, 2014 - God...damnit,
    I've only had a few white Burgs before and usually in the context of large tastings like berserkerfests and the like. I own a little bit of everything so when Charlie decided to have the weekly virtual tasting at WB centered around white Burgs I pulled the first one I found. I really wasn't thinking I would love this wine. I certainly don't need more stuff to chase. Well I'm screwed. My first thought, which is very unusual to me was "man...that's a pretty looking wine." The nose on this is intriguing with almonds, marzipan, apricot pit, and just a hint of sherry that had me thinking great, not only am I not going to like this but it's oxidized so I won't really know. The palate is simply great. The flavors come in waves and, like waves retreat and let something else in with each sip. Here some apricot, there some more almond and that marzipan note. Some salinity and citrus notes as well. It feels like it has heft one moment and then it's fresh and clean. Damn you Mr. Fu. My wife, who does not like wine comes by just now and says hey! That is a pretty wine! And takes a sip. She asked if I had the rest of the bottle somewhere. I nodded and she drained the glass. She said if all my wines tasted like that she might show interest. Great wine.

    January 22, 2014 - Dinner at RPM (RPM Italian - Chicago, IL): A really nice showing. Super deep and rich with lots of hazelnut, brioche, and waxy lemons on the nose. The palate retained great acidity and edginess - a great counterweight to the plushness of the palate.

    January 22, 2014 - Got better with air. Not very elegant and a bit buttered popcorn for my taste. Not a great showing. Wine dinner.

    January 17, 2014 - On the day this wine really shows incredibly well. Exotic notes of pineapple and citrus. Starting to show a really great depth. Mature now, but will probably improve a bit further, but drinks incredibly well now.
