    September 12, 2015 - Rousseau Chambertin Clos de Beze event; 9/11/2015-9/12/2015 (Capella Hotel Georgetown): Very youthful color. The nose of beautifully mature white Burgundy, a bit of lanoline, grapefruit, lemon oil, almond paste and honey. Very good concentration, cool citrus fruit driven palate impression and medium finish. Very enjoyable.

    February 25, 2015 - Great showing. Worked with apps that were less seasoned and not shellfish. Better on its own maybe. Very nice wine.

    May 7, 2014 - Burgundy dinner @ Serenade in Chatham: First wine of a big night...We didnt decant, wine was a little closed but then opened after about 20 minutes and continued to improve for an hour

    Deep gold color, still looks fresh. Sophisticated nose, white flowers, honey, tropical fruits. Palate was citrus/lemon, honey,butterscotch. As it opened, even more secondary nuances of lemon/lime zest.

    Gorgeous wine at 22 years...still has a way to go. My #1 white of the night.

    February 15, 2011 - Still kicking--and more! Like my last bottle a couple years ago, this starts out tired. It is aromatically restrained and the palate is a bit flat. But after some air--really, like 2 hours of airs--this opens up and becomes a delightful cocktail of lemon cream, oranges, nuts, and some exotic fruit elements. 20 years has given this loads of complexity, and it's still a pretty intense, assertive Puligny. The only gripe is that it comes off as a bit blousy from the lack of acidity, and there's no real minerality. Nevertheless, this is a very well made wine that drinks beautifully for its age. I wouldn't be surprised if it continued to improve and drinks well in another decade still.

    February 10, 2011 - Drunk at a black truffle lunch at Les Amis in Singapore. Released from Leroy in 2009, so very good provenance.

    Light to mid gold in colour, with slight flecks of green. No sign of its age.

    A very appealing nose of nuts, green apple skin, honey, butter and lightly smoked bacon. Remarkably fresh.

    The palate at first was quite closed, so the wine was decanted. This allowed some secondary nuances to develop. Sous bois and black truffles ? Perhaps this was the effect of the menu - the food and wine married well. Quite gentle acidity, and only moderate minerality, unlike some other of Leroy's whites (this was my only slight disappoinment with the wine, but true of the vintage as a whole). As the bottle progressed, the acidity faded and there was some botrytis and more honey evident in the background. This enhanced the experience as it showed another facet to the wine.

    By this stage we were onto the Epoisses, (so the combination was magical), but as is all too frequently the case, the last glass was the best.

    Overall a wine that would challenge many a Batard and a great bottle for a 19 year old premier cru.
