    March 2, 2020 - Un beau riesling mais style un peu trop sucré pour moi.

    June 3, 2019 - Bon vin assez bien balancé. Offre une belle rondeur en bouche avec des saveurs de fruits exotiques assez prononcé (mais pas désagréable). Un élément différenciateur par rapport au riesling alsacien? Je ne crois pas que le niveau d'acidité soit assez important pour donner un potentiel de vieillissement.

    September 28, 2018 - Tropical fruit on the nose including mango, lychee. Broad palate with some texture. After open 24 hours.

    May 24, 2018 - Post Tyrrell's Dinner @ GC: Mineral, lime and laundry power on the nose. Moderate sweetness on the palate, but doesn't really have the acid to drive it forward. Nice but a little underwhelming.
