October 20, 2015 - Similar to the last 2 bottles except no longer in peak drinking period. Still delicious but fruit is starting to fade.

November 18, 2014 - This was the best bottle of this wine I have had of this in a while. A couple of the recent bottles were over the hill or had lost some of their verve but this one was like a stunning old corton Charlemagne. Great mineral definition with fruit flavors of tangerine, nectarines and flowers. Very fully bodied and long finish.
