    December 20, 2015 - Dark red translucent in the glass. On the nose, there is some pleasant barnyard funk, hints of spice, and subdued dark berry and stone fruit. This is surprisingly soft on the palate, less weight than expected, nicely balanced, very Gevrey in character -- fruit, soil, some tobacco. Comes across as mature -- will likely hold for a bit, but I don't see this putting on any more weight or gaining much more complexity. Easy. I enjoyed this. Decanted and consumed over about two or so hours. Last tasted about 18 months ago. Half way through a case.

    December 17, 2015 - Medium red. Exciting initial whiff of flowers, red fruit, and game. Medium to lighter weight. Some smoke, tart cherry, and soil eventually joined by mint-very Gevrey. Over time (just 90 minutes, to be clear), this became even more tart and thinned out. Best when first opened and immediately attractive at that, but I must say that my last 2 bottles of this strongly suggest that it is already attenuating. Don't press your luck by holding for too much longer.

    November 23, 2015 - Half of the bottle left from the previous night and preserved by the use of argon gas.
    Interestingly the light fizyness the wine had on the palate was gone and the few harsh angles observed the night before ironed out. This leads us to believe that the wine needs decanting at this stage. A good hour or so. 91 still.

    November 22, 2015 - Very solid and just about coming into its drinking window. The nose is simply beautiful, on the rich side for pinot, bright red fruit, light smoky edge. Very nice and concentrated nose. On the palate it is still very young and could use a bit ore time to iron out the few harsh edges it has. Give it 2-3 more years and this will be punching way above its cast and in line with its bloodline. 91 for now and we would suggest one waits.

    July 6, 2015 - Slight sense effervescence at opening, settled down, opened up, that essential burg nose, focus, minerality, not the most interesting GC but a very good qpr
