    September 7, 2019 - Tropical fruits, creme brûlée and orange marmalade on the palate. Refreshing acidity makes the wine seem distinctively lighter on the tongue. Good length; will last for decades but lovely now.

    July 8, 2019 - Loads of botyrtis and super young. Lots of acid and fruit so it will have a very long life. Good now but best to hold off on these.

    April 25, 2019 - Initially a bit of chlorine on the nose though lessened after several days of vacuvin. Barleysugar nose. Losing a bit of definition from the primary fruit ageing, though not (yet) truly replaced by anything more. Medium sweet. Palate is cleaner than the nose.

    March 9, 2019 - Out of a 375. Great complexity and very long finish. Who needs a off vintage of Yquem when you have this. Drink now and over next 30 yrs.
