    April 8, 2016 - Note: I use a rating scale for which 85 represents a very good wine.

    Unfortunately, not as enjoyable as the previous bottle 3.5 years ago. Even with some extended breathing (2 + hrs) not that full and rich. Maybe the "house style" is crisper and sharper than I prefer. Oh well, it's only money.

    January 22, 2016 - No premox (1 in ~10). Delightful minerality, sea shell, crisp citrus, with hints of tropical fruit. Finish has a toasty brioche note.

    September 25, 2015 - Oksidert! (Forrige flaske for fem år siden var fantastisk, 95 poeng.)

    (Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne) Bright canary yellow color; almond, fresh macadamia nut, apple nose; tasty, oily textured, poised, youthful, stony, tart citrus, almond and mineral palate; medium-plus finish 93+ pts. (it's wonderful to taste a good sample like this, after having tasted such a badly oxidized bottle last year)

    (Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne) White pepper and banana battle brown butter and Asian pear. On the palate, the wine is full of dense mushroom and earthy pear flavors.
