    February 24, 2020 - Dinner at MingHin (Chicago, IL): Pretty solid white Burgundy; not too reductive but a surprising peachiness here. Not too reductive nor stylized, seems to sit right in the middle of a lot of winemaking choices and ends up pretty enjoyable. Perhaps a little more extracted on the backend, where this shows a hint of bitterness.

    May 25, 2019 - Un bourgogne blanc exactement comme je les aiment. Un vin avec beaucoup d’amplitude et de fraîcheur. Saveurs d’agrumes avec un finale légèrement sur la noisette. Il n’a probablement pas fini de se développer mais très agréable à boire maintenant.

    September 25, 2015 - Nose: There is an attractive and forward nature to the nose with white fruits, pears, mineral notes, apples, and some stone fruits.

    Taste: Medium bodied with crisp medium/high acidity. The acidity isn't too overpowering along with white fruits, pears, mineral notes, and some stone fruits.

    Overall: This was a lovely young Chassagne premier cru. I would like to see where this goes with another 3-5 years time as it feels like there is some room to grow.

    September 25, 2015 - Burgundy Tasting at Chevalier Wines: Riper, richer, and rounder than the 2011s. Again, a prominent pear note on the nose. The acidity's here, despite the rounder texture, but there's not much stuffing on the palate.
