    July 8, 2017 - Perfect color, medium amber, no signs of ox. Very classic orange marmalade, quince, honey, and wet oak. Hints of white flower. DrInking at peak

    April 2, 2017 - Bevan and Huet (and watching the Final Four) (Home): Of course, one always opens these with trepidation. This was a good bottle. Golden in color. How dark should a sound 15 year old Chenin be? This was a bit darker than I expected but within reason. The nose is very nice. Orange peel, salinity, a slight oxidation (normal amount at 15), and a Bit O' Honey candy bar. On the palate, this is slightly viscous. Slightly sweet. Plenty of orange rinds. Slight crushed shell note. Good acidity. Nice finish. It took me a glass to accept that this was a good bottle (I almost felt like Woody Allen trying a wine), and then this was quite enjoyable. No hurry on sound bottles.

    September 10, 2015 - Golden color; quince and floral nose; just a hint of honeyed fruit, the acidity well balanced. Long, soft finish. Beautiful.

    Rated 2 on a scale of -1 to 3.

    December 25, 2014 - Light golden. Gorgeous combination of quince and lively citrus. Moderately sweet, pristine, almost crystalline quality of the fruit with even more orange on the palate than the nose. The usual fantastic texture and exceptional acidic backbone but perhaps a little less of the Clos du Bourg soil component than in many bottles of this. Last bottle of this and perhaps the best of the lot-on to the '05!
