    June 1, 2017 - Somewhat reserved. Petrol, good acid - this wine is sharp and chiseled. Nicely precise. Lots of floral and mineral notes. Showing very well right now but no rush with these given the nice acid backdrop.

    May 7, 2017 - very golden colour similar to the batard-montrachet 2010 in the same flight, minimal petrol in the nose, but in the palate very clean and lean, some yellow stone fruits as mirabelle plum, good acidity, long pure finish, for me reaching its top but will last at least 5 more years

    April 8, 2017 - Always a treat to try Hune, given that I refuse to buy it on grounds of the prohibitive pricing (and Alzinger/Nikolaihof filling all my dry Riesling needs these days). This is very good, but like so many Trimbachs it just doesn't live up to the hype/price point. There's an array of bright citrus and white fruit here, showing the ripeness/slight fatness I expect from '99, but there's also plenty of stony minerality beneath and good acidity. I like this a lot and it's nice to drink when someone else is happy to share a bottle (thanks Eric!), but I'm still not convinced I should be getting this in lieu of Steinertal or Steiner Hund.

    April 8, 2017 - Salil does Chicago 3; 4/6/2017-4/8/2017 (Chicago, IL): I'm going to take the opportunity to say that I just love Hune. And this bottle was another in a line of them that confirms it for me. The nose on this showed a slight bit of citrus, but mostly riper, white fruit character. The palate is quite expansive, but the acidic and mineral cut here holds that back. Yellow fruit shows up on the midpalate, but the finish is taken over by some lemony acidity.
