    February 25, 2020 - Another underwhelming bottle, with evident residual sugars dominating what fading pear and apple notes that remain. This was never very good, but surely there's no upside either.

    February 28, 2016 - Not sure this is aging very well. The austere fruit seemed outweighed by the intense mineralogy and acidity. Pear, lemon, a touch of oak, but really needed some fleshiness. Maybe an off bottle, but I purchased it on release and transported it less than a mile.

    July 21, 2013 - Noise crisp pear and floral notes. Light, airy taste. Well balanced. Semi-sweet. My kind of Chard. Had 2011 at Boarding House in May - not nearly as good.
