    June 18, 2017 - initially not a lot of expression but after some time this wine is opening up a bit more and displaying a good structure and some restrained. The high acidity is always there making the wine a good food companion.

    October 8, 2015 - Cellartracker says I should have opened before now, but I find it holding up very nicely. Nice golden color. Very muted nose. On the palate the initial impression is wax and cream giving over quickly to high acid and sour quince. It does have some oxidative character on the prolonged finish, mixed with some underlying mineral/wet limestone. Just a hint of bitter smoke/tea on the end is a bit distracting and perhaps the only significant indication that this wine is a "drink now" rather than a "continue to wait" wine at this stage. I paired it with a dish that included olives, and it actually matched quite nicely.

    March 24, 2015 - Warm yellow in colour, with some brownish touch. Oxidative nuances in the nose, some sour fruit, restraint. Surprisingly dry and acidic taste, creamy texture, long finish. Very fresh and quite interesting austerity.

    December 29, 2012 - Showing very slight oxidation, but not to the point of distraction. Notes of slightly bruised apple and a fraction of aldehyde were the only detractors. Some nice notes of lanolin and wet stones kept things interesting, whilst a nice cut of acid kept things reasonably fresh. A better bottle would have scored 3-4 points higher.

    January 13, 2012 - Beautiful, elegant aromas of smoke, mineral, marmalade, quinine and pear. Light to medium bodied, broad on the mid palete, firm acid on the long mineral finish. Really very good but I think I might have liked this more when zippy and young. Could be shut down, transitioning.
