    June 11, 2019 - Blind tasted. Simple cider style, semi sweet. No length. Strange but that's Natural/biodynamic sometimes with no apparent explanation in hand...

    May 14, 2018 - Chenin at Table, Donkey and Stick (Chicago, IL): Honestly, if I had come across a wine of this colour in a white Burgundy, it really would have been dumped out right away. Almost worryingly dark in colour, but apparently there's a spot of botrytis in this? A little cidery and some browned apple notes here. Some oxidative tones on this as well. There's a light touch of residual sugar that help gives this some roundness, but this is a wine that needs some food to balance things out.

    February 27, 2015 - E&R's 1st Annual Salon des Vins de La Loire-egon et La Dive Bouteille (E&R Wine Shop, Portland OR): Wow, this is quite funky on the nose. Smells of rich tar and burning rubber and burning melon rind. Or, like someone's dirty belly button (no idea why that came to mind). Rich palate entry that's quite large with more funky, strange flavors. Mellow and rich, but somehow the whole thing remains quite enjoyable and balanced despite the oddity of the whole thing. Rich finish that's quite enticing and lovely. Big and decadent finish.

    September 14, 2014 - This needed some time to open up, starting off a little yeasty and over-sweet but eventually it bloomed, becoming elegant, mineral, perfectly balanced. A very expressive wine. Good pairing with sautéed brill and potted shrimp.
