    October 12, 2019 - PNP into Rona Burgundy glass (“Leaf” day): Medium golden to the eyes.

    Smoke infused, slightly preserved citrus peels. Vegetal, wax. Nice stuff.

    Good structure. Persistent finish.

    92-93 points.

    April 26, 2019 - En révisant mes notes pour le deux dernières bouteilles, j'obtient confirmation que le vin s'est définitivement bonifié à travers le temps. La complexité se dévoile progressivement avec de légère saveur de fruits exotiques et de poire mure. le niveau d'acidité est parfaitement intégré. Je le vois comme un vin très polyvalent qui peut être servi en apéro ou au repas. L'on y retrouve une belle complexité en bouche.

    January 24, 2019 - Chateau Yvonne Saumur (Arlequin Wine Merchant, San Francisco): Medium yellow. Some funkiness like Savennières. Medium weight, glycerine and wood. Some lemony acidity but downplayed fruit. Good.

    September 2, 2018 - This wine is always a crowd pleaser and last night was no exception. The Loire is a blind spot for me with respect to French wine, but I’m glad I found this one.

    December 23, 2017 - Take a loaf of bread, break it into pieces, throw it on some sheep, and spray them with water. Thats this wine. I usually like wild and interesting wines, with animal flavors. But this just seemed to go a bit far. So funky and so yeasty. Reminded me of the joly wines, but with a tad less complexity. This wasn't horrible, I like that it does something different, but I wasn't feeling this bottle as much as I'd hoped.
