    May 15, 2019 - Nose: Lemony with perfume and mineral aromas. Palate: Very mature yet still has good acid structure. The lemon qualities are somewhat ripe but just enough. Color is still youthful. Guess is maybe another couple years but why wait? Drink up if you have any. My last Sauzet PM (2007 Les Refers) will be drunk up soon.

    May 25, 2018 - In the zone and very Batard like and full bodied. Great acidity and a combination of honey, browned butter a d citrus on the nose. I like.

    August 11, 2016 - Nose: Fresh aromas of candied lemon with some toasty undertones. Palate: Good richness with still solid acid levels after 8 years of age. Really well balanced. The candied lemons show with a 15-20 second finish. While there could be more minerality and complexity this is still very well made and a good time to drink.

    April 29, 2013 - Somewhat restrained nose to start, but started to open with some air. Good citrus, minerality and depth. This should age well. What a difference from the Landmark chard it was served against which was loaded with tropical fruit and easy to guess CA.

    April 11, 2013 - Popped and poured. Delicious!! Floral nose with beautiful flavors of lemon-lime curd, stony minerality and plenty of acid to back up a fairly rich mouthfeel considering the flavor profile. I could drink this every day. Great food wine as well and just something to drink with friends. Last bottle...I must find more!!!
    Was also an amazing value a JJ Buckley.
