    April 18, 2019 - Chablis and Champagne Weekend; 4/17/2019-4/21/2019 (Au bon Manger, Ingo's castle, Rocaille, Le Pot d'Etain): not blind
    Unbelievable length and depth. Everything fits to ist place: acidity, oak, fruit. Enormously dense and compact. At the first day WOTN for 3 out of four. For me same Level as Rousseau's Chambertin 2008. 98-99

    November 11, 2018 - Lovely nose of melted butter, vanilla cream, candied lemon, apricot and peaches; buttered popcorn; pie crust; creamy texture on the palate with an explosive finish and is endless and reverberates; nice acidity helps frame the otherwise rich and enveloping fruit; rounded on the palate, but has a tension; impeccably balanced; in a great spot right now.

    September 23, 2018 - Tremendous aromatics, complexity and focus, this is simply magnificent and drinking great today....hopefully my other bottles will survive 10 more years of aging to add secondary characteristics. What are the odds

    March 3, 2018 - La Paulée de San Francisco - Gala Dinner (The Fairmont - San Francisco CA): Small glass, brief note. Lemon, green apple, but of summer morning grass. Very minerally, seeming chiseled our of limestone to start, then gradually ramping up the ripeness and intensity from the middle through long finish. Wow now, with upside.

    March 3, 2018 - La Paulée de SF Gala Dinner (Fairmont Hotel, SF CA): A wow experience (one of many tonight). This is a mouthful of big, rich, dense orchard nd stone fruit. With epic amounts of concentration. Just seems so young and needing time in the cellar or time/attention in the glass over a few hours. Alas, tonight isn't the night to ponder a single wine over several hours. Serious upside from here.
