    November 13, 2019 - Peach coconut liquer with less alcohol. Silky fat tannins. Lot of sugar residu in the bottle.

    April 24, 2019 - Early test bottle #1 of 3. Rare 90 case production annually. This was near seamless, no complaints and it is not even ready yet. Sensing it is a bit closed at the moment informs a higher score should truly prevail in time, there are a few aspects that can easily come together for an outstanding future. Lighter yet with substance, hints of sweetness in amazing balance with all else, pleasing from sip to decently long finish. Brought to BYOB to specifically pair with food of lobster toast, foi gras, crab risotto and scallops. Opened 2 hours before for some light breathing before consumption. Researched hard how to best enjoy this wine, not much out there, producer was spot on about shellfish pairing. There are a few left for sale in USA, one to secure if never tried or have an itch for a rare well made white Rhone. Overall we were quite pleased even at the price tag, well worth it to explore. 93-94

    February 3, 2019 - Kleur: Opvallend bleekgeel Aroma / bouquet: Aangenaam aroma. Verleidelijk. Een vleugje citrus, vooral limoen. Steenfruit, vooral perzik. Venkel. Mais. Smaak / Afdronk: Frisse start. Romig en dik-sappig, filmend mondgevoel. Vat-tannines. Geconcentreerd en smaakvol. Lange afdronk. Algemeen / potentieel: Mooie Ch9dP, wat mij betreft nu nog te jong. Deze fles proef ik graag over twee jaar terug! 50 + Kleur: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 12 + Smaak / Afdronk: 17 + Algemeen / potentieel: 8 = 92/100

    Google Translate:

    Color: Striking pale yellow Aroma / bouquet: Pleasant aroma. Seductive. A touch of citrus, especially lime. Stone fruit, especially peach. Fennel. Maize. Taste / Finish: Fresh start. Creamy and thick-juicy, filming mouthfeel. Barrel tannins. Concentrated and tasteful. Long aftertaste. General / potential: Beautiful Ch9dP, as far as I'm concerned, still too young. I would like to taste this bottle in two years! 50 + Color: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 12 + Taste / Finish: 17 + General / potential: 8 = 92/100
