    October 30, 2021 - No heat this time. Excellent weight but without heaviness. I got a kind of salty tangerine note this time which I found most attractive.

    April 22, 2021 - I'll split the difference on my last scores. The alcohol is there, but not having it too cool actually brings out enough fruit and freshness to partially mask it. Ready.

    September 22, 2019 - I hardly recognise my last note. This wine has come together beautifully. A fresh, herbal example with no excess heat or bitterness in evidence now. I think white CNdP needs a full 3 years from vintage to shine.

    March 28, 2019 - Initially heat, little nose and astonishing bitterness and even acidity on the palate. Fortunately this disjointed mess came together over two nights if not producing full harmony, but at least suggesting that there is more fun to come. Elusive but pleasant aniseed and lemon notes.
