    November 1, 2019 - This was very nice, with mature apple/grapefruit/pear stuff and whatnot. But I couldn't help thinking, is this 'spend thirty bucks then store it offsite for 13 years' nice? Not so sure.

    October 22, 2017 - Consistently good, oak has melded, nice Sauvignon freshness but with depth too. One left. Excellent wine. Now coming into its own.

    July 4, 2017 - What a fantastic wine. Age had just improved, mellowed, made golden the edges of the grapefruit citrus wonder of this.
    I bought these bottles at wine store being sold to Binnys- I took a flyer on a cheap price. What fantastic stuff. I think i
    bought 7, should have bought a case. Ever since I've been looking for Haut-Bergey Blancs and just haven't seen them. Great wine, great seven year run of drinking them.

    November 29, 2015 - Not changed since I last had this 2 years ago. Youthful grapefruit melon and nice mineral character. Excellent wine.

    November 27, 2014 - Thanksgiving dinner. This wine is now 9 years old.

    Chilled, no decant. It starts out honeyed, oily-smooth, the aged grace dominating. Soon, the flavors shift to pears and apples as the fruit comes forward. An hour later, the Haut-Bergey reminds me of what it was like young: grapefruit citrus, happy and well mannered wine. The more time passes the more the grapefruit comes out.

    It seems to have much life yet- I have only one more bottle and I'll try to keep it to 2016+ to see how it aged in the longer run. All around a beautiful happy white.
