    June 28, 2020 - This is pretty special stuff. Bronze salmon color with a fine subtle bead in the glass. Gorgeous aromas of berries, cherries, brioche, and macadamias. The palate is explosive with rich taut fruit and complex notes throughout. Has aged beautifully and shows no signs of slowing down.

    July 6, 2019 - rose hue - pleasant but possibly less acidity than I would desire.

    December 31, 2018 - Light Salmon Orange.

    Extremely fine bead.

    Delicious Out The Gate— a nose of the very sweetest brioche, whiffs of fresh squeezed Valencia orange juice and vanilla bean.

    A subtle but precise creamsicle brioche nose. Exactly.

    Very tasty front of palate: sweet grapefruit and subtle brioche dough and minerals.
    Truly & Exquisitely refreshing. Good mouth tension. Suberb.

    If perfect: an underrated drink. Only very recent droughts of 1996 S & KcM eclipse. Timidity and temerity— and the suspicion that I may have only given the 96 KMesnil a 97 Keep this to: fuck it:

    96-97
    Wonderful
    .
    (The previous reviewer is commenting on the uncanny persistence of this BEAD. In other words, the microscopic bubbles are THERE, if invisible, and each taste creates effervescence that tickles everything.)

    December 26, 2018 - Salmon / orange color. Lots of bubbles. Mature red apple fruit. Vibrant, penetrating. Wow. Tingles the tongue. (95)
