    April 4, 2013 - Monthly tasting club LTC 2013-04; A mixed set of white, red and sweet wines. (@ KvH): Almost the same (blind) note as last year. Not really sure what to think. The oak is still quite dominating, but one way or another it also gives you that luxury feeling. The minerals show, but the fruit is a bit overpowered. Give it some more years of ageing so the oak can integrate.

    February 25, 2013 - While it has evolved, the reduction is still there and heavily so and personally this is not a wine that I can consider as drinkable. Light gold in color with on the nose blue cheese, mold and toasted brioche and much of the same on the palate along bitter notes of parsil and cilantro, with very low acid and a long finish.

    July 2, 2012 - Weekly tasting group #032; A mixed set of white wines. (@ CvR): Beautiful and complex bouquet with smoke, toast and caramel. On the palate minerals, tart lime, stone fruits and yellow fruits. See also previous mote.

    June 7, 2012 - unique gasoil aromas and flavors, odd vintage - but very special
    (like an old Riesling)

    April 13, 2012 - This is something special. The bouquet is loaded with toasted oak and minerals, flint stone and almost volcanic impressions. Same on the palate. Also concentrated and ok acidity. At first a bit difficult, but with more airtime and a little higher temperature the wine showed more nuances. Gives the impression of the more luxurious Burgundy wines. I guess around 2014 or 2015 this can be a great wine. 91+
