    August 25, 2018 - Deep lemon colour. Heavy gunflint reduction on opening, with spicy, vanillin oak, followed by scents of pears, lemons, wet river boulder and yellow apple. Initially almost painful acidity on entry but, with time open, it settles somewhat ... Green apples, limes, greengages, wet limestone and rocky minerality on palate. A tactile, grippy texture, not lacking in weight or volume. Excellent structure and acidity, but a little spiky, not yet in balance. A very dry, long mineral finish. Hold for 3-5+ years. I see great potential here.

    February 26, 2018 - Dinner at Formento's (Chicago, IL): Way too young, and likely not showing what the winemaker is seeking just yet. The nose here is super toasty with loads of marshmallow, ripe white fruit and some mineral. The palate is mercifully less okay but petty compact and simple right now. Not particularly enjoyable at this stage. Low 80s showing, but I suspect this will be much better as the oak integrates and the fruit fleshes out.

    February 26, 2018 - Dinner at Formento's with Michael (Chicago, IL): A hugely disappointing showing of a PYCM. If served blind, I'd easily put this in California (but probably from a decent producer). Way too fat, rich, and oaky. Where's the 2014 cut? Tons of flint and reduction, and air seemed to make all the bad elements even worse. Chardonnay should be the knife that cuts the butter, not the butter. Sad.

    August 11, 2017 - Burgundy Dinner (GC): Blind. Struck match, smoke, apple and pear. A little more depth on the palate than the St Aubin but it is also rounder and sweeter fruited, while it certainly has acidity, I preferred the mineral streak of the St Aubin to the slight broadness here. May come together more in time.

    May 7, 2017 - PWTG 2014 Chassagne flight, 3rd place out of 6 wines.
    Reduced nose, flint, iodine, and lemon. Wow this has a burst of lemony acid flavor on the palate. Lean, tight, very pure expression of Chardonnay, more Chablis like than CdB. Medium long finish.
