December 20, 2019 - This was very mature/sherried, more than i expected and older than i like my whites, but still enjoyable. Sourced from auction, the fill was perfect and cork in excellent shape, but I’ll guess pristine bottles would drink younger
December 10, 2018 - From magnum. Raw, nutty, umami nose. Even better with air time. Good structure and acid here on the palate. Missing half an increment of fruit on the finish. Nice bottle. 95-
April 22, 2017 - Lovely old white Burg. Popcorn, saline and balance. Went on.
April 22, 2017 - Insane wine. Grilled nut, popcorn, petrol, and durian. Palate is rich and fat with good acidity for the age. So long on the finish. A stunner.
April 12, 2017 - This bottle was on its decline curve. Beginning to oxidize yet still enjoyable
March 10, 2017 - Zachys La Paulée Auction, Day Two (Le Bernardin Prive - New York NY): It has been many years since I have had this wine, so I was very excited given my overall adoration of everything Ramonet 1989. Open several hours before I tasted. Both fresh and baked apple aromas with spice, mint and great richness that can only come from a ripe vintage. But the balance enables this to come across as rich without seeming extremely ripe. Identical flavors. Super length. Excellent wine, thanks for sharing, Jeremy.
March 8, 2016 - From magnum. I brought this to the tasting. One of the better wines of the evening. Got some shout outs. Great minerality and depth of flavor.
August 12, 2015 - From magnum. Sensational. Strong spearmint on the nose, gives way to savory, almost umami quality (hard to describe). Lively mouth, with tropical fruit notes. A certain austerity on the finish, but from opening everything was there.
April 2, 2013 - Spectacular bottle in great condition from Crush. Color showed like a young white burgundy. Finish and minerality were deep. This is white burg at its best. Well preserved bottles seem to have plenty of life left.
October 10, 2012 - Markedly better bottle than last December, this wine had the flowery qualities of a good Bienvenue but also the power that you usually associate with Batard. Full mature and no sign of fading (NoMAD)
