    January 23, 2021 - (à l'av avec B. et C.)
    Teinte dorée et brillante, avec de l'éclat.
    Nez très aromatique, complexe, patissier (flan) comme un chardo évolué, mais plus frais, exotique (ananas), floral, qq epices ... Même le nez scintille, quel relief!
    En bouche, il attaque sur la rondeur, avec delicatesse et sans poids, la fraicheur intrinsèque l'allège, la sensation minérale, saline, acidulée, salivante, ne lui enlève rien de matière, il s'étire en bouche, prend la place sans s'imposer: j'adore cet equilibre, il y a du vin, mais sans concentration, donc sans fatiguer ou alourdir la bouche.
    Après un 2013 bu il y a qq jours, ce 2010 est encore plus élégant, il y a une fluidité dans la richesse. Un grand vin de savoie "le Feu", qu'on se le dise...

    February 16, 2016 - This really improved from the last tasting (3 years 1/2) ago : and this is fantastic.
    The mandarin and white flower is there, but with everything turn up a notch.
    Fabulous with Yuzukosho as usual with gringet ( like the Mont Blanc bottling for that matter)

    March 22, 2015 - Quick splash in my glass before adding a 1/2 cup to the soup pot, and it's a delicious splash. Plenty of palate richness, ripe tree fruit, bordering on tropical, and a clean, persistent mid-palate and finish. I like the depth here, as it can stand in for other full-bodied whites without being oaky or buttery. Drinking very well now, though with so little experience with these wines I cannot say what age might do for it.
