    July 20, 2016 - Tiny touch of frizzante on the palate but otherwise all that one would expect; length, abundant fruit, serene balance of acid and flavour. Positively evaporated with pork cutlets on a bed of fennel and apple. Yum

    January 22, 2016 - Another lovely bottle. Superbly balanced - so vibrant and full of energy. Sweet fruit, lots of acidity, mineral notes and a lingering, spicy finish. Drinking very well, but this will be great for years to come. 92-94

    May 18, 2015 - Tropical fruit, yellow stone fruit, white flowers and minerality on the nose. Ripe fruit mixed with lime fruit on the palate, slightly sweet at first but there is lots of acidity. Wonderfully balanced. Mineral, precise, long. Delicious. Should evolve further. 91-92+

    April 22, 2015 - Now I feel that this is as exciting as when it was really young - a seamless complexity that is now more seductive and less bursting with laser-like energy like before. Really excellent.

    January 17, 2015 - Impromptu dinner - 96 Krug, 02 Churchill, 02 Raveneau MdT, 67 Latour, 01 Mugnier Amoureuses & etc. (Blacksalt, Washington DC): Good mixture of fresh whiter fruits like pear and white peach with mouth-watering lemon curd. Excellent concentration, slightly fizzy, bright acidity, layered mineral and lovely sweet finish. Still a bit sweet. Simply delicious and yummy. Will improve.

    (Dönnhoff Schlossböckelheimer Kupfergrube Riesling Spätlese, Nahe, Germany) This wine blew me away when I tasted it earlier this year. It is the perfect combination of balance, purity of fruit, and mineral depth. Because the 2008 vintage is much leaner than other recent years, the high acidity perfectly balances the residual sugar, allowing an arsenal of mineral and tertiary flavors to bounce off the clean and focused fruit. Truly a spellbinding wine.
