    March 16, 2017 - Nice color. The nose shows rich aromas of white flowers, peach, almond, orange blossom and minerals. This is medium bodied on the palate with excellent concentration and wonderful finesse. The long finish features a strong mineral element.

    March 10, 2017 - La Paulée de New York: Vertical Tasting (Rainbow Room - New York NY): Tasting, brief note. Easily the most complex wine of the vertical. Leaner fruit with less coming forward, but there is coiled energy here, really coming through on long finish. I'd cellar this longer than the 2008. The upside potential is greater here vs 2008 (but riskier?), while the '08 will clearly be easier to enjoy over the next few years.

    March 10, 2017 - La Paulée Verticals Tasting (Rainbow Room NYC): In a nice place right now. Showing some slight development and good depth. Really delicious wine.

    March 10, 2017 - The Verticals at La Paulée 2017 (The Rainbow Room, New York): Light yellow-pale for a 10 year old wine. Dry stone fruit aromatics. Lighter than its younger counterparts, less oak, some leesiness. Bright and spicy in the mouth. I liked this quite a bit although it is a step or 2 behind the '08 in depth and strength of material. Delightful, elegant mouthful now, though.

    March 10, 2017 - Perfect spot between richness and freshness, with good middle-weight tones and complexity. Not one of his best wines, but awfully attractive and appealing. Would drink these now.
