    July 9, 2016 - Nice wines; 7/8/2016-7/9/2016 (Geelong VIC): The most impressive element of this wine was it's apparent lack of maturity. Would have said this was less than five years old if I'd had it blind. Lovely nose, honey blossom and chalky complexity. The palate was good too but maybe lacked a bit of concentration and was a bit phenolic on the finish. An enjoyable wine but the 08 showed that this domaine has really stepped it up a gear in more recent times. This bottle showed what a tragedy it is that so many white burgundies don't go the distance because of premox.

    June 11, 2016 - Bright gold. Sulphur, oak, vanilla with some pear, lime and green apple. Very simple wine, quite one dimensional on the palate, some yellow fruit, some acid, but that's about it. Perhaps I didn't give it more time in the glass, but at a snapshot, nothing interesting.

    March 23, 2016 - Soirée chez les Delagrange: Un vin rond et puissant, boisé à l'ouverture, un peu pâtisserie. Une richesse que j'aurais mis en 2009, c'est gras et solaire, avec encore un coté pâtisserie en bouche. Beaucoup de bois pour un vin de cet âge, on a l'impression d'un grand terroir un peu écrasé. Décevant.

    February 18, 2016 - 11th of 12 and really hitting its stride, pnp, perfect cork and level, previous notes since 2010 fine or better - pale, quite leggy, yellow; rich, honeysuckle, peach, lemon, trace of chalk and vanilla, mineral, classy; medium bodied, long, persistent, complex, coats the mouth but steel at the centre, what's not to love, just slighter than the epic and really unready 2000s and 2002. Very fine, particularly for vintage (18.5).

    (Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne) Same colour as 2000. The wine shows a blast of fruit on the nose. The steely palate is much more mineral than the 2000 and seems to show an extra length despite less-than piercing acidity. Very drinkable today, in fact it's a bit of a honey.
