    March 6, 2022 - Sans note;
    Excellent, nez discret au départ, principalement sur des notes de citrons & de pierre concassé. Léger aspect de melon miel en arrière plan.
    Bouche droite, bien balancé, principalement sur des notes citronnées & impression de pierre mouillée forte. Splendide!

    September 7, 2021 - Decanted 30 minutes. Pale. Green tints. Expressive nose of characteristic sauvignon blanc aromas but what distinguishes this is that there is real complexity here. Layers of green and yellow fruit.On the palate you sense the acid but it is well integrated into the fruit, which is ripe but only just. Mineral. Fresh. Quite lightweight. Long - with hints of grapefruit lingering on the finish. Lovely. My experience with Francois Cotat leads me to believe this will continue to get more interesting - so I would keep this a few more years. So rare to drink Sauvignon blanc of this quality.

    April 10, 2021 - Light lemon. Gentle aromas of undergrowth, herbs, carpet cleaner and some ammonia (old barrels?). As the wine opens, there is more lemon verbena with light white fruits and a touch of hazelnut.
    The entry is all lemons with a pleasant edgy, almost salted lemon acidity yet with some almond paste suggesting some evolution. The mid-palate is more steely with a mineral texture and medium finish.
    Quite a challenging wine? Seems a little light weight?

    February 8, 2021 - Mûr mais sans lourdeur, avec une belle longueur! Agréable maintenant mais zéro stress pour vieillir admirablement bien pour plusieurs années.

    December 13, 2020 - Même dynamique que les bouteilles précédentes mais moins convaincant. Tres bon quand même.
