    November 19, 2015 - Light gold in the glass. Great nose of salinity and brine with soft citrus and flowers behind it. Tremendous minerals on the palate, nice chalk and white clay. Very clean and precise, even more so than the '01 Lefliave Chevallier enjoyed alongside, with just a hint of chlorine. White flowers. Super fresh. Some nut oils, macrona almonds with lavender. A beautiful piece of work.

    April 17, 2015 - 2001 Gevrey-Chambertin Grand Cru Dinner (Kheam Hock Road): Superb. I actually did not take to it when first poured – I thought the more ready 2001 Leflaive Batard we had alongside was far better. Over the night though, this just grew and grew as it sat in the decanter, and I found myself being bowled over each time I took a break from the reds to return to it. By the end of the evening, this was absolutely superb – one of my wines of the night in the midst of what was supposed to be a red wine dinner. Even from first pour, it had a big, gorgeous Batard bouquet, with rich, slightly honeyed tones of yellow fruit and cream alongside chalky mineral and a touch of talcum powder. An alluring nose. The palate suffused the mouth with a warm, rich glow of honey and butterscotch and yellow-fruited flavours, all wrapped in a creamily textured depth. I found it a bit too big and a little unwieldy for my taste at first, but it seemed to come together quite miraculously with time. By the end of the night, this was a display of effortless power and balance, with fresh acidity giving the wine an energy and buoyancy that belied its strength and depth. Notes of white chocolate and little sprinkles of cumin and ginger then emerged past the midpalate, adding nuance and complexity. Fantastic. There was a little heat right at the end at first, but this too faded with time to reveal a long, long finish full of mineral and little nutty notes. Brilliant stuff, starting to show well now. This has a long life ahead of it though – I would leave it aside for a few more years yet, but if serving now, do remember to give it some time in the decanter.

    November 29, 2014 - 'Farewell Jason' Long Lunch (Hong Kong Wine Vaults, Aberdeen, Hong Kong): Rich yellow gold. Nose is silence-creating and totally mesmerizing: temple smoke and expensive ginger biscuits from Fortnum and Mason, fumey. Palate is wonderfully integrated and complex multi-layered myriad of minerals and lemons. The lemons have incredible depth and complexity. Quietly very very assertively resonant. Huge length. Subtle. 95+.

    October 10, 2013 - Thursday Night Dinner (RPM Italian - Chicago, IL): A serious bottle of chardonnay, albeit young. The nose was quiet (in a good way) - hints of flint, lemon, and pear emerged and built over time. I should have decanted this 4-5 hours before dinner...

    This is all muscle at this point. So much amazing material in the bottle. Hopefully, I can try some when it's mature.

    Amazing today, amazinger tomorrow.
