    September 30, 2019 - A private lunch (Restaurant The Lobby Fizeaustraat, Hotel V, Amsterdam, NL): No detailed notes, but it seemed better and more energetic than I remembered it.

    August 16, 2019 - A private lunch (Restaurant Brut de Mer, Amsterdam, NL): The 13 domaine vineyards in Meursault (the village, not the AOP) only yielded 12 barrels in stead of the usual 80 in 2016, so the cuvée contains two-thirds négociant fruit in this vintage (mainly sourced from around Puligny which did not suffer so badly from the frost). As Barry Rothof already mentioned, the (citrus and peach) fruit expression is relatively rich here, but the wine seems to lack the wow-factor which Roulot often delivers even at this level (e.g. the excellent 2012). It’s a solid, even lovely Bourgogne Blanc, with warmth from discreet oak, but the palate lacks the usual tension and length. Expensive for what is, in this vintage.

    August 4, 2019 - I buy Roulot's BB and Aligote fairly regularly in recent vintages as they've become the only Roulot a normal guy can "afford." lol. This '16 is showing some of the challenges of the vintage as Roulot lost much to frost. It's rather simple, straight forward, low acidity, upfront sappy white fruit. Borders on being cloying due to lacking structure/spine. It's tasty in an- open- for business way, and crowds might enjoy it on a hot day, but it lacks the complexity Roulot usually gets at this level. And when not super-successful, in hindsight the price seems outrageous. Drink up.

    July 14, 2019 - Very nice Bourgogne blanc with classic Burg notes of just ripe orchard fruit, apple, hard yellow peach, minerals and slight sappiness; medium body, classic, not especially complex but solid. EWG Entre Nous.
