    June 24, 2015 - Dinner at Ma Cuisine, Beaune: 2007 is Bill's and my favourite, recent white Burgundy vintage, so this wine seemed a good place to start ... Excellent, bright clean colour. A bouquet of baking spices, limes and other citrus juices and powdery nuances, with flinty minerals. A gorgeous wine in the mouth, citric and spicy with some rocky minerality. The excellent acidity provided precision and focus and cut through the garlic butter on my escargots. Good fruit weight and power. A lovely Puligny, drinking well now, that should have many years in front of it ...

    May 23, 2015 - It needs some air to show true potential. Complex and charming bouquet married with lovely fruits. mineral and acidity. Very well-made and very Puligny. Very mild reduction.

    April 10, 2014 - Perfumy without the mineral edge that I favor in Puligny Montrachet. To me, more like a jazzed up Macconais.

    March 27, 2014 - White Frenchies at Sea Change (Sea Change at the Guthrie, Mpls, MN): Light gold color. PNP, drank 1 glass over an hour. This was good, introverted currently, minerals, lemon, citrus, floral. Medium full body, medium finish, earthy, brisk minerality, citrus. Lean. Could flesh out with some time? 91(+?)

    March 27, 2014 - I like this wine but it definitely needs more cellar time to reveal its magic. If, I owned it, I wouldn't touch it for another 2 years or so. That said, it shows great balance and precision but needs to flesh out. If you open one now it might be better on night 2. Youthfully vigourous and and just slightly unfriendly right now. Drinking more like an amped up Muscadet at this point.
