    September 5, 2019 - Crisp, fresh aromas of apples and pears with only a hint of cat's pee, before an attack of mostly apple and pear, a more waxy, rich middle section, and a long, lemony finish. There's a great elegance to this wine and if there is oak, we couldn't taste it. It's still very youthful and should improve further, with perhaps more complexity and intermingling of the different tastes, since this bottle had already progressed in that sense compared to one we tried last year. A great example of a dry white Bordeaux made in a traditional way. The bottle has a screwcap closure which doesn't seem to have altered its ageing potential at all.

    July 25, 2019 - Crisp and clean. Gooseberries, yellow apples. Tropical. Minerals. Nice crisp acid. Still alot years left. Great with aspargus risotto and oven baked cod on a hot summer evening.

    June 10, 2019 - Nose starts off as a bit unclean. Improves, but there's the element of flint. In the mouth it is not balanced. The acidity is too sharp, and this is also very evident in the after taste. This is, however, criticism at a high level.

    January 22, 2019 - Nydelig hvit Bordeaux. Gul frukt mot tropisk, mineralsk, herlig syre

    January 15, 2019 - Skrukork. Dobbeltdekantert. Åpner med noe kattepiss, men vrir det av seg med en strafferunde i karaffelen. Stikkelsbær, grønne epler og mineraler. Syrlig munnfølelse. Noe tropisk over frukten. Lang mineralsk avslutning med sitrustoner. Ypperlig til piggvar. Holdbar stil.
