    June 14, 2017 - Mid straw colour. Pronounced apple, very slightly waxy, against a background of citrus and hay. Became fuller and a little more floral with air. Probably still to see its best days in 3-5 years but good to open now nevertheless. ****

    November 11, 2015 - Big powerful nose with nose of honey and boiled lemons. Real intensity of flavour with layers and layers on the palate. Almost a little savoury on the entry with flavours of floral honey and straw. With time there’s almost a vanilla ice cream character. Very, very long.

    July 9, 2015 - There is an enchanting nose and with some time to settle down, the taste converges towards that same enchantment.

    Some of the lustre had seeped away on day 2.

    June 11, 2015 - Lovely light gold, hint of green. First night, very rich and voluptuous. Maybe a bit warm. Ripe fruits, hints of pineapple even, custard. Long. Next night much tighter and finer. Ripe melon and apple. Real mineral core. Tremendous depth and concentration. Long. Great acidity. Very good.

    September 1, 2014 - Drack det här ett par dagar tillbaka, och jag kan bara säga att det var rikt, smakrikt, fullmatat med gul frukt, stor kropp och ändå behöll fräschören hela vägen. Jag har en flaska kvar, och det är ingen brådska med den. Passar bra till smakrika fiskrätter, eller till ljust kött.
    Andra flaskan, 5 dec., 2017
    Lite slankare och lättare nu, men också mer komplex och elegant. Gott till ugnsgrillad kyckling med vitlök och citron.
