    August 17, 2019 - Meursault Perrieres blind tasting 1988-2011: From a late Domaine release. Golden color. A lot of Wows on the table from the first smells. This bouquet had it all. Orange peel, flint, lemon curd, grass, flowers, very deep and complex. The palate was crisp as well with excellent freshness and length. WOTN candidate.

    May 16, 2019 - Corked but less musty and moldy. So muted. Nothing on the palate. Didn't change much at all after a few hours.

    January 11, 2019 - Holiday dinner at the French Embassy, Washington D.C. (French Embassy): This has aged well, and I think the second time I have encountered the wine in the last four years, as Howard Cooper also brought it to another holiday dinner a couple of years ago, if I recall correctly. It may not have as much precision as the Ramonet, tasted just before, but I really like how it combines grace and "fat" at the same time. Indeed, the palate is more broad than long, but always pleasing. I am not sure how much longer anyone should hold on to this. It seems fine now and likely just on its plateau.

    October 2, 2018 - Drinking beautifully, with classic Meursault spice on the nose. Rich on the palate but with cutting acidity. Shocking light in color for its age. 2 bottles were in perfect condition.
