    December 15, 2019 - Rich tropical fruit notes still present, though don't really get the sense that anything has filled that gap yet, and with enough acid and minerality to carry it over the finish line admirably. It is compact, but not heavy. Nor is this terribly delineated, but what it lacks there it makes up for in balance. All-around solid for an 11 yo early drinking CM cru. Don't think it's going anywhere fast, but might be just off its peak of richness if you wanted more primary flavor and hedonism.

    November 19, 2019 - Took to restaurant and didn't take detailed notes. This was fabulous. Balance, purity and you get a sense for the exact place where the fruit was grown. Went perfectly with the appetizers; burrata, escargot, lobster mac. Brilliance in a bottle

    June 23, 2012 - The most beautiful white burg I have EVER tasted! Pineapple, spring flowers and honey aromas. Lemony and fresh spring floral notes on the palette with beautiful acidity and a hint of saline on a wonderful long finish. THis will age wonderfully but is near perfection now too.
