    December 31, 2013 - New year's eve (At home): Half-bottle. This is becoming really good, classic maturing botrytised Sauternes of good (not great) quality.

    August 1, 2013 - Taken directly from the cellar, opened and cooled. Drinkable even rather warm (like 15 C) and appearing quite mature: harmonious, tasty, nice.

    December 31, 2011 - Double-decanted several hours in advance. Had a tough time defending itself against three desserts with lemon, but seemed very drinkable with decent complexity.

    March 9, 2011 - Martine's Wines Portfolio Tasting 2011 (mk Restaurant, Chicago, Illinois): Aromatically reticent, as is to be expected from a dessert wine holding this much RS, but on the palate... oh my god!! Sure, the sweetness is noteworthy, even foremost, but 'there's so much dry extract,' as Allen Meadows is wont to say when praising a particular Burgundy, that you practically forget you're drinking a dessert wine. A panoply of flavors, I'll just give a few of them... honey, quince preserves, apricot nectar, saltwater taffy, wet wool, marmalade... what's mind-blowing here is that this is still so risibly young, you want to buy as much of this as you are capable of carrying and/or financing and laying it down in a cool, dark cellar to track its progress for the remainder of your natural life... Am I gushing? Have you had this wine? If not, you can't, it's mine, all mine!!
