    February 8, 2019 - Blue and red fruit, citrus, orange, caramel, brioche, sherry, smoke and flower. So nuanced, delicate and elegant, with just amazing balance and precision. 97

    December 31, 2011 - Réveillon du jour de l'an 2011 (St-Nicolas, Québec): Amazing! Amber like color, nose of coing, brioche, very special.

    September 26, 2011 - Quite burly, if regal, certainly classy with plenty of deep red fruits.

    February 24, 2007 - Some Champagnes and a few reds (Columbus, OH): Floral with blue fruits. Deep and deliciously rich and nuanced, lots of Pinot character. Well balanced mousse.

    August 12, 2006 - (Took to Degustation, NYC) Light bronzey tinge with delicate mousse. Lacey and delicate nose with slight sweet sherry notes, brioche and sea shore. Slight sherry upfront - very tasty and enjoyable sherry - which quickly faded on the palate. Lovely texture and mineral w/ a little grip. Some dried fruit and caramel notes on the finish. Just gorgeous and incredible with loads of persistence and character. Perfect with small plates, especially quail egg tortilla, croquettes, slow egg and roast beef w/ foie.
