    September 6, 2021 - The aromas are so rich and laden with creamy notes. I get caramel and a light lemon with a nutty quality. The mid palette is all almond, pear fruit, and buttery. The finish has flavors of sweet cantaloupe, caramel and butterscotch.

    July 30, 2021 - Just broke my last bottle; couldn't taste it, but the concrete floor smels of lots of new French oak...

    April 6, 2021 - I love this style. Age has rounded everything out and it is ready for optimal drinking. New world style for sure without excessive oak. Medium bodied and delicious.

    January 20, 2021 - A random Wednesday evening, served with an excellent sea bass from Tekka market in Singapore. Beautiful gold medium Color. Attractive nose with pineapple, citrus, sweet Apple, clove, wood, smoke, butter, nuts. I had an initial slight touch of gasoline / nail polish (an indication of some light volatile acidity I am presuming). Med+ acidity, Med body, Med+ flavor intensity, Med+ to Long finish. Still quite high in acidity, toasted pineapple, tasting a lot of butter and nuts, cloves and smoke, Long lasting finish. This is very good, but I think I am having it too young. I could have mixed this with a chassagne or puligny if it were not missing some roundness. Structure still needs to fully integrate so I would recommend waiting a couple years to open this bottle and then maybe this will sort out. Pricey but if you look at prices in burgundy, all is relative.
