    March 25, 2020 - Really nice, raisins, thick, sweet. Raisins. Great density, good cut through acidity. Raisins. Can’t fault it but quite simple in flavour, raisins. While this will undoubtedly be one of my best wines this year it is nowhere near some of the scores given for me.

    November 9, 2019 - Ponsot Clos de la Roche: Thick as motor oil, and one of the most concentrated tastes of wine you could imagine. A unique and pleasurable experience.

    June 10, 2019 - A few times in a lifetime, you drink a wine that brings tears to your eyes and your body starts to shake from excitement. This just happened as I was decanting this for my supper with my wine buddies tonight. Easily one of the top five 100 points I have awarded. Just incredible. Thick unctuous, I'm talking Maple syrup consistency, the wine was silent as I poured it resembling light coca cola in colour. Black tea, marmalade, honey, brown sugar, coconut, mango, dried apricots, orange jam with a never ending finish. The greatest dessert wine I have ever had and probably will never have another like it again. Will last another 30 years.

    June 27, 2018 - A thick, viscous dessert wine. Dark caramel color, doubt this will improve, but plenty of acidity to support it. Complex, changing with molasses, currant, citrus peel and fig. Fascinating and perfect with a savory cake with wild blackberry sauce. A classic of its kind, the Czars were apparently regular customers.

    October 7, 2017 - Very sweet, but it does have good acidity. Feels mid 200g/l RS. Blind I'd call this as a Rutherford Muscat. The definition of raisiny. Lots here, but it's pretty forthright. Looks more like a light px. Super. ****
