    March 25, 2018 - WSET, Level 3 Advanced Certifcation Training; 3/11/2018-4/22/2018 (Texas Wine School at the Food & Wine Foundation of Texas, Austin, TX): Tasting sample. Clear medium gold color. Fully developed and pronounced aromas of butterscotch, butter, fading vanilla and some stone fruits. More tertiary aromas than primary or secondary. Palate is dry with pronounced flavors of dried peach, dried apricot, butterscotch, and cream. Flavor profile is very developed and complex. Medium alcohol, and medium body. Medium plus acidity supports a long finish. An outstanding example of a well aged Chardonnay displaying excellent balance, intensity, complexity and long length. Drink now, not suitAble for further aging given its mature state.

    February 25, 2016 - I'm on a little bit of a personal carpe diem streak right now, so it didn't bother me at all to pop this on a school night with my wife's simply though skillfully prepared shrimp and pea risotto.

    The color is a little darker gold than I expected, and a flash flood of apprehension began to rise as I feared prem-ox. But haply this was not an issue at all. Nose is a generous mix of lemon, other citrus, oak, honey and faint vanilla. Not likely to mistake this for new world, even if it conveys a certain richness and intensity on the palate. Beautiful balance and texture, restrained yellow fruits, minerally and assertive finish that's a tad creamy but sans any jarring oak-induced flavors. If this isn't punching above its villages appellation, it's no lightweight either. 13% ABV

    June 24, 2014 - (at Lafayette – NYC) Good richness and some tropical fruit notes buffer the firm structure. A great food wine that should continue to develop over the next few years. (90).

    March 21, 2014 - My first Meursault so maybe I don't know what to look for. Sommeliere recommended it for a pasta with pistachio/basil pesto and carmelized brussels sprouts. Big, masculine wine was way too hard and oaky for the (delicious, if perhaps, hard to pair) dish. On a QPR basis, wine was a complete bust.
