    July 28, 2019 - Has improved quite a bit over the past two years or so. Drinking really well with an elegant long finish. May still be improving but no crime to enjoy it now.

    March 22, 2017 - Translucent raspberry, nice nose, everything in balance but still a bit young. Can enjoy now with a one hour decant. Best in perhaps 3 years.

    May 7, 2016 - Perfectly acceptable premier Cru Volnay. Clean nose of fresh raspberry and earth. A tad more fruit concentration ( and a little less terroir ) than a typical Volnay offering. Light to medium on the palate. Paired well with a red lentil / kale soup and sausage / broccolini flatbread with pomodoro sauce. My only issue is the continuously escalating price point of these Côte de Beaune reds and/ or red Burgundy in general. I understand that many Sonoma Pinots may lack the unique Burgundy terroir characteristics and land scarcity issues; but at what tariff ( trophy collectors aside) do these wines make economic sense for actual drinkers ?
