    January 10, 2015 - A wow of a wine that has a beautiful light gold color tinged with the faintest green. Ripe, fully-extracted fruit and minerals are infused with a lively, scherzo-like acidity. Awesome! This is delicious, and it is not even at its peak! Some say the 2010 is better but I am not betting on it. Hold for about six years. 94+ points.

    December 28, 2014 - fresh and firm acids and minerality, really needed the one hour decant (then re chilled)

    December 13, 2014 - Amazing wine that truly opens up after 1hr. Mineral on the nose along with hints of greafruit. Has a sense of the sea in there. The nose and taste are spellbound. Finish lingers on for a full min.

    December 11, 2014 - Cellared since release, perfect cork and fill. Light yellow color, citrus, flowers, light to medium body, zesty acidity, clean finish, outstanding.

    December 6, 2014 - My wife and I almost ran out of superlatives here. Gorgeous nose of seashells, lime, and jasmin flowers. Tremendous balance of the rich mouthfeel, lime-driven acidity, and chalky-saline crunch on the long finish. Lives up to its grand cru billing.
