    August 6, 2019 - Fully mature, displaying good acidity, toasty citrus and a funky mushroom note.

    April 30, 2019 - No formal notes, still very youthful and a fairly tightly knit package albeit quite drinkable, an excellent showing.

    March 20, 2019 - Dinner at Jade Court (Chicago, IL): Drinking fabulously, despite being one of psmith's always-corked bottles. The nose is fairly mild, and doesn't show too many mature notes. There's amazing freshness overall here, with an incredible youthfulness thanks to the acidity. Sometimes I find older chardonnay can get a little funky and weird, but there's none of that here.

    January 19, 2019 - outstanding and drinking beautifully now - a lovely balance of acidity and fruit

  • dream Likes this wine: 95 points

    December 31, 2018 - Lovely yeasty nose of ripe tart lemons and fresh caramel. Great power and intensity and still drinking young but showing great integrated flavors of tangy pineapple, tart lemons and copper minerals. The finish is so satisfying with a fantastic crunchy complexity with notes of caramel and smoky chalk. A stunning blanc de blancs with many years of life ahead. 95+

    (Pol Roger Blanc de Chardonnay) This was a mineral-whore's wet dream. So shelly and complex with all different types of green apple laced minerality. Incredibly young and tight with nice flavors of green apple and pear. Great sap after it sat in the glass for a while. Needs at least twenty years but will be something special.
