    May 16, 2019 - Perhaps served a touch warm, but still delicious. Big ripe and dense with nice underlying crisp cut. Citrus oil, fresh picked apple, and a kiss of hazelnut. Lovely.

    April 6, 2019 - Consistent with prior notes, but has not evolved much in the past year. 94-95+

    April 5, 2019 - A fine mix between structure and richness, intense, complex finish. Promising.

    March 30, 2019 - A light yeastiness, egg custard, kombu, flan, mousse is steady and fine, a slight creamy quinine bitterness shows in the midpalate, this is vital and evolving, one moment very steely, the next, lush and creamy, with a long egg yolk and granite dust finish. Superb with a Couteaux of razor clams, sea beans, steelhead caviar, and kaffir creme fraiche. 20 years of great drinking ahead.

    March 30, 2019 - Wine Monuments Man Chapter 4 (Berens am Kai 1 star Restaurant): Get it blind as a closer of a beautiful evening. I guessed Krug 2004 but nose and palate remind me more to a DP than Krug. Oyster shell, saline, not the typical roasted aromas. Very precise, opulent but loosing a bit of his sexieness at release. Phantastic concentretion and length. Lime and iodine in the finish. 96(99)
