    May 16, 2020 - Breathe (time unknown) before serving. Good acidity with honey, zest and flower with some depth. Medium finishing. Still fresh and vibrant.

    August 30, 2015 - Light yellow in color. Full, forward, attractive and fragrant nose of mature & developed, complex aromas of apples, pears, citrus notes of lemons/limes & grapefruit with floral notes of honeysuckle, roasted hazelnuts, minerals, flinty, stony, buttery & a hint of toasty oak. Medium bodied with a very good concentration of balanced & smooth textured, complex, rich, fruit flavors of tart apples, sweet pears & lemons/limes with minerals, flinty, stony, honey, buttery & a hint of toasty oak. Long lingering finish. Drinks quite well at present and I doubt any further development would occur from additional aging, so drink up! An outstanding Chassagne without any of the typical pre-mox issues.

    December 9, 2007 - Oxidization on the nose. Oxidation on the palate. yet another '96 white Burgundy with cork problems.

    October 17, 2004 - Medium to mature yellow. Semi-oxidized on the nose with notes of beer, and rubber underneath. In the mouth the wine had ample fatness but little grip. LAcked freshness and vibrancy. As for structure the wine seemed slightly undefined. The general flavour impression was quite nice, and the aftertaste did have some length, however in the grand scope of wine analysis this bottle seemed slightly oxidized. Personally, I could enjoy the wine for what it was, but I guess some people would give this wine a no rating. Certainly adds fuel to the debate on oxidized 1996 White Burgundy wine. Overall, this was a wine I enjoyed quite a bit, but like I said, in a wine analysis sense...

    May 22, 1999 - Pre Auction Wine Tasting w/ Aubert de Villaine (DRC) (NYC): Closed nose. Needs time. An elegant, rather than powerful style of white Burgundy.
