  • Someting not quite right about this bottle, especially on the nose. A bit funky...no tca or premox. The palate is deliciious with good depth and length.

  • Domaine Leflaive with James Handford MW (Handford Wines, London): Right on the money for us and both of us loved it and rated it 95. So it could be a Papies style of wine. Nice gold color. lovely floral nose, citrus notes, light hint of oaky dynamics. Nice minerality, the acidity is present but is polished and round. Nice depth and complexity complete the symphony. Feels fully developed and on the peak ad we would suggest having it sooner than later. A solid 95

  • Keith's Blind Challenge 2015 (The Medlar, London): Blind. Mid straw. Classy white burgundy nose. Nicely struck match nose. Quite dense but nicely mineral and focused through the mid palate. A touch if mint makes me think this might be a repeat of the 06 Rammonet BBM, but no. **** Not as impressive as the same wine six years ago, though still lovely.

  • Huge wow here. No-doubter right off the bat. Next to the 2005 Batard, and I liked this better. Big thwack of sulfur and gunpowder on the nose to go along with lemony fruit and a chicken broth type of savoriness. Richly fruited but crunchy and crystalline on the palate. This keeps reminding me of those sticky lemon drop candies with the sugar crystal coating, thick, succulent and sticky sweet when you bite into it but with a crunch on the skin. But also plenty of bass tones and depth. And it just doesn't quit. This is the vintage the grapes were so perfect they printed a cross-section of one on the back label and it looked like a Mandelbrot fractal. It still manages to depict the wine pretty well.

  • 1st of 2 wines in our 2nd-flight (& last) flight of whites. It was almost "too easy" to nail this. Nose was textbook Puligny - flowers, cream, honeysuckle, peaches; very attractive. On the palate, this had a slight oily texture, & the purity really stood out amidst notes of lemons, melons, honey & a bit of butter. So poised and balanced with good minerality and acidity. Very good!
