    February 26, 2018 - Dinner at Formento's (Chicago, IL): Terrific nose that strikes me as classic Corton -- concentrated, powerful white fruits with some stone/mineral accents. The palate is rich with GC concentration throughout and chewy white fruit. For all of the power, it's still fresh. Nice spice and white floral accents. Lovely. In a great spot.

    February 26, 2018 - Dinner at Formento's with Michael (Chicago, IL): A good wine, but fairly weak for a Corton-Charlemagne. There are some fruit components that I can't quite place here that feel a little atypical for a chardonnay. It's not a prominent feature, but it is something a little off about it. The real weakness in this wine is on the midpalate, which thins out immediately into a very short finish. Frankly, this doesn't have grand cru stature at all. As far as the natural winemaking goes, this doesn't seem to have any off flavours or aromas (apart from the slightly mysterious fruit).

    May 31, 2014 - GRANDI BOTTIGLIE NIGHT (ENOTECA GRANDI BOTTIGLIE TORINO): Aromi lucidissimi e nettissimi, classiche note di yogurt e gelato alla pesca, latte di mandorle. Agitandolo nel bicchere sembra che una brezza marina fatta di vento, sale e schiuma, porti al naso freschissime note di calcare e iodio.
    In bocca è splendido, tanto equilibrio e tanto corpo, ma nulla prevale. Torna la mineralità sui torni verdi dalla mela ranetta e la buccia del limone.
    Finale rinfrescante alla citronella e molta persistenza. Vino molto giovane ma tutto in finezza. Buono Buono
