    September 5, 2019 - Brought, along with a 2004 Raveneau Butteaux, to drink with friends Thursday night at the Acker Auction held at Le Bernardin Prive. Popped and tasted.... Light gold color, relatively tight nose showing some yellow fruit a little funk but appeared to be a sound bottle and was a little warm. They put it on ice and we moved on to some champagnes 96 DP, and 96 Oneo, 08 Grand Anne, 08 Cristal rose.....

    By the time we returned to some taste some whites, the Rav was just opening up but sadly the Batard, which should have been a baby at 15 years old, now showed some oxidative notes which blemished the wine. Although drinkable, unfortunately this is just is another confirmation to me that this wine is no longer the consistent, long aging, benchmark GC it was up to the 1996 vintage. These need to be consumed much younger. They will never reach the same peak that great older bottles do

    July 12, 2019 - Drank with Peter Lunzer in Sweden. Not over the hill, not oxidised, but not very special.

    November 14, 2018 - Served blind, I was confounded by the oak. Every taster commented on the oak. I got some tropical notes at first too, but they subsided. When it was tropical I guessed 08, then moved toward 07. This is pretty backward and youthful, but given the vintage and producer do you really keep it around hoping for better?

    June 1, 2018 - Pale gold color. Nose is a bit shy showing some hay, honeysuckle, lemon, and ginger notes. Palate equally shy at first with lime, ginger, and some toasted hazelnut notes. With work, I get a sense of the density of underlying material and there is a sap to this wine, for sure, but fireworks never go off. Holds overnight in the cellar and loses some of its energy on day two, as expected. The finish is shorter than I'd like for a Grand Cru of this age. Blind, a delicious wine. With the label showing, I remain disappointed with this knowing what I've tasted from other vintages over the years. Perhaps more patience will be rewarded - I've not had any oxidation problems in the first three bottles. Drink or hold.
