    August 10, 2019 - no notes, so NR, but again this was fantastic wine... my wife (who has become a good 'wine gauge' immediately said I really like this stuff... she doesn't know any names or vintages but she always picks the best wines

    July 24, 2019 - Denver Burgundy Group July Meursault Tasting
    This was terrific and tied with Boillot and Jobard for me as WOTN. It had that additional dimension you get from the absolute top level producers. Classic Charmes with a honeyed, nutty element, but was lighter in mouthfeel and had great minerality. This was super elegant and clearly a pedigree wine. Persistent and long on the finish. If this was the only wine we drank at the tasting I would have spent hours enjoying it. Tough for the price given it does not have the depth of a Grand Cru but if anyone is pouring I am grabbing a myself a big glass. Only up from here, still a baby and has all the makings of a gorgeous, long lived Charmes.

    January 12, 2019 - Bu après le Clos de la Barre qui est un peu fatigué, celui-ci est top. Droit, la complexité de son rang, une finesse qui me fait même penser à Perrières. Une très belle réussite pour ce millésime qui est souvent ingrat ces temps-ci.

    September 27, 2018 - Powerful nose with waves of peach, pear, white flower, and hazelnut. Impressive density to the medium-weight flavors that start with a zesty minerality before developing fleshier orchard fruit on the midpalate. Lengthy finish. This is phenomenal.

    May 1, 2018 - outstanding as always, lovely tension / lift with just a subtle hint of sweetness to the citrus... love it as always
