    June 27, 2014 - HDH auction tasting at Tru; 6/27/2014-6/28/2014 (Chicago, IL): A very seductive nose with some caramel and baked green apple notes. The palate has moderate intensity with a prominent note of licorice. Quite good, but I feel this is lacking a bit of complexity, and there's really nothing in this wine that's out of the ordinary. You can do so much better at this price.

    December 2, 2013 - 高比例的「Chardonnay」釀造出的一種很有氣勢的大型香檳風格,初入口的口感結構很莊嚴,氣泡溫和穩定,展現白中白的嚴肅感,這應該就是羅斯柴爾家族形塑的帝王形象吧!酸度頗為明顯,讓酒體與香氣十分持久,尤其可以感受在喉嚨所留下香檳酒氣,這款酒很明顯地散發出Chardonnay葡萄釀製香檳時所散發出的帶有礦石感的葡萄香氣。香氣部分是明顯而優雅的花香,並帶有些微柑橘,入口結構有如白色殿堂,清楚而準確,風格很純淨以白丘的Chardonnay葡萄香氣為主,乾淨!中後段風味更為雅緻細膩,酸度蠻高,很能支撐酒體強度與長度,呼吸後,酒風轉較柔媚,略帶干果風味,毫無苦味。這款無年份白中白香檳的結構很好,應該還有不小的陳年實力!

    November 30, 2013 - Sunset Corners Champagne Tasting (Miami, FL): Too woodsy and smoky for my taste.

    April 19, 2013 - Dinner with Paul Goldschmidt, the proprietor of Chateau Vray Croix de Gay at Ripple (Ripple Restaurant in DC): White fruits, airy, graphite, mineral and smoke. Incredibly fine mousse, air almost evaporate once touching the palate, medium acidity. Seems a bit simple.

    December 8, 2012 - HDH auction tasting at Tru (Chicago, IL): Predominantly a fruity-fresh nose of green apples, grapefruit, and a touch of almond. On the palate, this is an easy-going, drinkable blanc-de-blancs. Quite fruity and zesty, there is an intense malic acid vein that goes from beginning to end.
