July 24, 2016 - Beautifull aged chardonnay, buttery, full bodied, tropical fruit on the pallet.
Lacks a bit of fruit in the nose but I guess that's the age of this stuff.
Nice effort, rather hard to find in Belgium.
If you have any of this, drink up will not get beter

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.
