    September 23, 2021 - Sjaak's 40th birthday dinner (Groot-Ammers, Netherlands): Fresh and youthful, lifted nose, flowers and flower honey, crisp acidity balanced by gentle sweetness, mild bitters, slightly light finish.

    January 16, 2021 - Light vivid yellow with a bit of a glow to it. Strange nose with multi-vitamins and oxidation. Significant but not dominant oxidation with notes of beeswax, plentiful soap stone minerality, and a Yuzu citrus note in the finish.

    December 21, 2020 - Found 3 in the back of the cellar. 2 were oxidized, but the 3rd was fantastic. It opened over an hour. Hay, lemon, and musk with enough acidity to balance the volume on the back end. Such a different wine than it was upon release. I'll trade primary fruit for complexity any day.

    February 29, 2020 - Perfect condition; I'm surprised. Looks like a very young wine. Classic lanolin, wet wool, lemon pith, and rock. Completely dry; plenty of acidity. Oakless. Astonishingly good, frankly.

    April 20, 2019 - Dry, precise, layered - and interesting; citrus and minerals here, very balanced style, works well as an aperitif. No signs of fatigue.
    AD loved this.
