  • WINE TO MAGIC; 11/25/2014-11/30/2014 (TORINO - PALAZZO CARIGNANO): Il più puro e virgineo della batteria. Appena metti il naso sopra è incredibile la nettezza e la precisione dei descrittori, ma tutti riportano alla mente il bianco della luce che si scompone in un prisma multicolore.
    Gelée mela renetta e limone, cereali e fieno al sole. Élévage ancora sensibile, ma mai sopra i livelli di guardia.
    All' assaggio è un purosangue adolescente e scalciante, nervoso e tagliente, ma l' acidità viva è a supporto dell' estrazione e il legno dialoga con essi per regalare un senso di grande armonia, seppur vibrante e ancora da amalgamare a pieno.
    La scia salina che regala il finale è una polvere di diamanti che fa vibrare la lingua, ma pian piano si ammorbidisce ricordando la salvia e una gomma alla panna.
    Un vero Perrières accecante, dal potenziale smisurato. 94-96

  • Tenth Annual White Truffle Dinner (Chez Weber - Chicago IL): In Lafon Perrieres vertical. A last minute addition to replace the off bottle of 2001. This showed mots of apple and pear aromas and flavors, with the palate today dominated by very pronounced acidity and minerality. Very long and well textured, this needs at least 3-5 years in the cellar, but has real wow potential.

  • France 2013 - Côte d'Or; 4/20/2013-4/23/2013 (Beaune): Tasted at the Domaine. Recently bottled. Similar nose once again (lime leaf, citrus, touch of spicy wood) but here there is a bit more complexity with pineapple (maybe even the skin of pineapple as the note is not tropical or ripe in anyway) and crushed wet stones. On the palate this has loads of acidity and freshness with a lengthy salted lime finish. Precise and focused with minerality and stony notes as well. For me a good deal better than the Genevrieres. This is incredibly good right now but should age and improve (depending on how you like your white Burgs) for a few decades (assuming no premox). Outstanding. 93+
