    February 9, 2018 - The oxidative style pops but there is still an enormous amount of fruit at the core with pronounced balancing acidity. Finishes dry.
    Note2Self: Decant for an hour next time.

    December 16, 2017 - Rich but balanced by decent acid; earthy, musty. Deep golden color. Ripe yellow apple. Spicy.

    May 8, 2016 - One of my all time favorite 100% Chardonnay bottlings from Ganevat.

    Huge, imposing wine, that continued to evolve over time. This continued to get better over the course of 4 days. Has a long life ahead of it.

    March 27, 2016 - This is gorgeous Chardonnay. Rich gold color, lots of creamy citrus, honeyed and leesy notes. Might mistake it for white Burgundy blind, but there is a slight funky-fresh note that’s a bit different. Roast chicken is my preferred delivery vehicle for this type of Chardonnay, and it didn’t disappoint.

    If you have any of this vintage, I’d drink up soon. Probably fine for another few years, but is definitely rich and mature, based on the bottle I had. (For the geeks: 20-45 year-old vines, gravelly soil, whole cluster fermentation, 30 months in demi-muids.)

    April 13, 2015 - Klar, gyllen gul. Dyp nese med botrytis, mørk fersken, aprikos og av lynghonning. Dypt aromatisk og viskøs frukt med høy modning. Rik, frodig og konsentert. Frisk syre. Tørr, aromatisk utgang med god, lett krydret lengde. Friskere enn forrige flaske.
