May 25, 2016 - Hard to imagine enjoying a white burgundy more than this. Minerality and acidity are at the forefront, but there is serious body and bounce to this wine! A hint of white flowers on both nose and palate. Deep fruit. Looong finish with lots of residual complexity. I know there are bad bottles put there, as there are with seemingly all whit burgundies. But this was not one of them.

May 8, 2016 - 2 hrs open, having had this many times over the last 5 years, this is as good as any, orchard fruit, tangerines, grapefruit, lemon, honeyed viscosity, long finish. Wonderful

March 24, 2016 - Beautiful nose of white flowers & chalk. Good precision on the palate, with the flavours fanning out towards the end. Great!
March 3, 2016 - There was bottle variation here and an unacceptable rate of oxidation. 20% almost. The good bottles show sparkling white stone fruit with minerals and complexity. A Grand Cru length. There were no undrinkable bottles but the early oxidized bottles had lost their vibrancy and complexity. More nutty nuance. (Cornutt)1 person found this helpful Comments (1)
