    August 5, 2015 - Excellent! On est sur des arômes de thé vert, des notes pétrolées, avec une belle intégration de la minéralité. Un vin complexe, à son apogée? À rechercher pour la garde...

    August 3, 2015 - Des vins de rêve en blanc (Aux Délices de Fred): Une bouche très minérale et sèche, des notes de silex, c'est très complexe et envoûtant, d'une grande longueur. Un vin de belle concentration, avec de la tension, expressif, avec une finale magnifique. Grand vin. 94-95 pts

    July 5, 2015 - Very sound light yellow. Beautiful floral and petrol aromas. Very restrained, medium weight, definitely less densely packed than other vintages of Clos Ste. Hune. Sharply etched lemon with grapefruit on the finish. Powerful acidity and minerality that carries the endless finish. Extraordinarily fine and precise. Not tasted in 6 years, and I'd say that over that time, it has blossomed secondary Riesling traits without losing a bit of its underlying lithe tension.

    April 18, 2015 - Pale straw. Color looks barely aged. Equally tight on the palate with citrus and a whole lot of structure and minerality on the back-end. So tightly coiled but you can feel the layers of dry extract. A great bottle of Riesling with plenty of years ahead.

    February 14, 2015 - Not as expressive as other years. Deeper richer flavors. Not as much petrol on the nose.
