    April 26, 2016 - Another terrific btl tonight. This is all about ethereal refinement and purity of fruit. Just stunningly beautiful! Still drinking pretty young and reminiscent of a great Corton Charlemagne 's steely elegance. I loved this wine and grabbed some extra pours. Village level but in the right hands this is more like Grand Cru.

    April 26, 2016 - A Great French Tuesday at Tilia (Tilia, Mpls): Light gold color. Drank 1 glass over 30+ minutes. this was a laser beam tonight, taut, taut citrus, quite wound up, razor acidity and minerality. Felt young tonight and very coiled. Good stuff 92+ to 93pts.

    March 24, 2016 - A troubled bottle that we moved around a lot and really badly treated so not the best example.
    Still a very beautiful wine albeit starting to show signs of age. Now not sure that is caused by the bad treatment of the specific bottle or the wine in general ageing . Let's see at the next one. Felt like a 92-93 again but we will not rate as bottle was sub optimal.

    September 29, 2015 - Quite buttery and slightly ponderous when compared with the Roulot 2007 that was drunk beside it. The wine was big and had slightly nutty overtures before the floral aromas and lively white fruits came through. You can sense the structure and purity of the terroir beneath the oak and butter but the wine still needs some time before it is willing to reveal it. It's a very good White Burg but was bested at this point of time by the Roulot, but in a few years, it will also be as good or even better. 92 for now. 93-94 down the road.
