    December 16, 2014 - No pre-mox with this bottle. Wonderful wine that expanded and improved over two hours. Detailed and articulate in its expression, lush but controlled, full in body but also elegant. Wool, thyme, honey, spring water, rock. Lovely, lovely wine.

    October 29, 2014 - Deep yellow. Very fresh aromatics of pear, honey, and spice. Lush with zingy acidity, layered feel, pure fruit with less soil than usual for this site. Marvelous bottle. I'm getting to the bottom of the pile; over the past few years, each time I've opened one dreading oxidation, it has performed brilliantly.

    August 17, 2014 - I opened this at noon and brought it to dinner seven hours later. The color is noticeably deep yellow, so already I'm suspicious in light of the ongoing premox debate which seems focused on 2002 vintage especially. We all agree that this is not oxidized, but it does seem advanced, Greg noting the caramel in the back of the palate. Returning to this wine after dinner, again it doesn't seem oxidized, but it's not especially expressive and Brad notes that it's not on point for a Chenin. This was a disappointing bottle. With Greg, Jayson and Brad at L'Apicio in the East Village.

    June 23, 2014 - Medium to deep yellow. Fresher, more airy aromatics than Le Mont, brighter citrus, more honey. Textural Chenin, moderately sweet, very fresh, zingy acidity. Really superb tonight.
