    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

    April 16, 2018 - beautiful as usual, this bottling is one of our constant favorites (too bad its expensive)... this was light and bright (tho not the almost clear Fevre Montee de Tonnerre color) both to look at and to drink, great acidity and lurking citrus behind the large mineral wall... figure this will be better in three years or so, but still great tension tonight

    March 2, 2018 - La Paulée de San Francisco - The Verticals (The Fairmont - San Francisco CA): Tasting, brief note. 12/10/09 vertical. Fleshy and flashy start with peach and ripe apple along with floral charm. Engaging start, then more structured and minerally middle through finish. Good now, better in another year or three. VG length.
