    July 9, 2016 - Nice wines; 7/8/2016-7/9/2016 (Geelong VIC): This was a great bottle of wine. Initially very reductive and strong sulphidic aromas. These blew off to reveal a wine of great complexity with impeccable balance. More concentration than the 01 we had beside it and really quite thrilling too with the trademark structure which is the signature of the climat. More slate than chalk like in it's mineral expression. Everything you could want in a CC and well priced IMO for a wine of such high quality. This domaine hasn't had a miss in recent times. Great wine.

    June 10, 2016 - Greenish; mushroom nose; lemon curd; green apple; a bit sour on the finish but with overall sweetness.

    May 31, 2016 - Chardonnay Shootout (Chez Kailin - Northbrook IL): Tasted blind in pre-2010 Chardonnay flight. Orchard fruit with lemon and lime, then a trace hint of peach in middle. Moderately ripe, very minerally throughout. Easy to identify as Old World. My favorite wine of both flights, which oddly the group ranked #5/6 in this flight.

    May 14, 2016 - Lemony maple lemon curd and butterscotch; some tart elements; decent balance and follow through.
