    March 1, 2019 - Tooch Going Away Dinner (TDS): Tired and overly mature nose. Palate is waxy and flat. Well past peak.

    March 1, 2019 - A farewell to Tooch (Chicago, IL): Not a fan of this at all. Fairly oily with some nutty and waxy qualities on the palate. High-toned, with some Sharpie marker/organic solvent tones, and the alcohol seems like it pokes through a little bit on the finish.

    August 5, 2018 - Salty and austere, remarkable freshness for a 16 year-old white.

    February 9, 2018 - Gold but not dark in color. This wine is still firm on the palate with some minerality and some salinity. It hasn't necessarily improved with aging, but it has shown its ability to age well.

    December 7, 2017 - Wonderful tonight. Very fresh, rather angular at first, but then broadening a touch with wonderful lemon, chalk, and mineral notes. Lingering finish. Still in great shape though probably best to appreciate in the next 2-4 years.

    (Luneau-Papin L d' Or Muscadet) This is a stunning wine and possibly the finest Muscadet I have ever had. It just keeps getting better and better. Etheral nose of minerals, lime and sea salt. Crisp, yet fat and creamy on the palate with dazzling purity and long finish. Great stuff.
