    May 26, 2012 - A bit rough around the edges right now, with a bitter and clipped finish. Not entirely sure where this is in its evolution, but it doesn't seem too sure-footed. Hold.

    October 6, 2011 - While I remain an intense, devoted fan of this producer, this wine didn’t show well. It came across very hollow and aggressive — too much acid, not enough balanced, succulent fruit. I don’t know if this was an off bottle, or if this is just in an awkward phase. Either way, I expected something much more forward and brilliant; instead, I got a pit bull stuck in a dark corner with strangers in the room.

    February 25, 2010 - Nose: Apricots, lemon, along with some guava that gives it a tropical tone. Alcohol is apparent on the nose as well. Palate: Excellent acidity throughout. Loads of citrus throughout as well. Hint of apricots, otherwise fairly simple, maybe a hair tart, dry riesling. I've experienced much of the same for a lot less out of Alsace.
