    April 12, 2020 - Color beginning to connote age. Nuttiness, white and tropical fruits, some mineral on nose. Palate has definite oily fruit weight with persisting flavor and presence. Decent acid balance, again with some mineral. Good expression of new world chard, but lacks elegance and precision.

    March 2, 2015 - Well I almost made it a year before drinking my last one! Biodynamic theme out for dinner after a Joly tasting, so this fitted the bill perfectly. Quite happy I opened it now rather than later, it seems quite well developed and in a good place. Acid has dropped away a touch, overall quite rich and harmonious.

    February 25, 2015 - Brief dinner at Golden Century: Lemon, chalk, vanilla and sugar. Has rounded out, with that richness still there but not as punchy as before. In a good spot for drinking but it should hold just fine over the short term.
