    May 13, 2019 - Sadly over the hill. Dark amber in color with a surprising amount of dark sediment. Kept in the fridge for a few days to see if perhaps it would come around but alas it never did.

    May 10, 2019 - The color is showing a golden hue hinting at this wine’s 10 years of age. Nose is showing just a little sprinkling of brown sugar over pure citrus. Tasted blind I’m 99% sure I’d have guested a similarly aged Huet chenin blanc. It has that honeyed, waxy pear characteristic. But then also a little smokey gunmetal that I associate with Chard. Palate is full bodied with a very fine almost silky texture. A very tightly integrated beam of acidity runs through it. Impressive length. Richer fruits on the palate. To me, this all comes together beautifully. But I am surprised to see more than 50% of these wines still in people’s cellar (thanks CT!). What are you folks waiting for??? :)

    May 22, 2017 - Deep golden yellow/caramel color.Massive aromas of butterscotch and caramel. A broad, almost oily palate pretty much diminished of fruit. Notes of oxidation and then a beam of bright acidity. This reminds me of the oxidized wines of Nicolas Joly in Savennieres.

    March 11, 2017 - Very enjoyable wine. The nose was tight with smoke, peach and herbal notes. The palate was medium to full bodied but crisp and bright with lemon, pear, peach and a touch of toast. The length of the finish was impressive and clean.
