    March 15, 2015 - We really liked this wine in the first hour. It had a lot of verve and energy with crushed white fruit, white flowers, a savory olive streak, and a stony mineral edge. After a few hours it definitely mellowed out into a wider array of flavors but had less structure and a subtle vinegar off-putting note. Interesting wine. Went great with Vietnamese Pho on a stormy, rainy day in the NW.

    October 6, 2014 - This wine evoluted in two times. First right after opening, some exotics notes jammed, like pine apple, whites prunes, and chineese pear, an impresion of late harvest, very mouth watering. The palate is surprising with a nice acidity and minerality carried on a pure blend of squashed abricot and grape fruit juice. Actually some impercebtible volatile essence gives a new nice texture, reminding me pinot gris.
    Second, after one hour or two, volatile disappeared, things became more classic, more flat, (same impression as Vindictive, a previous taster) closer to the northern Rhone style. Witch rousette is close to. Very good.

    April 9, 2014 - fresh, nice weight and balance. Very subtle flavors. Seemed best when it was a bit colder. With warming it flattened out and while not unpleasant was less interesting. At this point, it is too expensive for what it is and lacks the immediacy of some other vins de Savoie. Not sure that I see this gaining complexity with age, but I have no experience with this sort of wine.
