    November 28, 2014 - One of the most prominent apple scents I've ever experienced in a wine. Green apple on the palate, with a nice dose of acidity and a noteworthy saline/mineral finish. First experience tasting Gringet-based wine, and it was memorable.

    April 19, 2014 - A private lunch (Restaurant Marcus **, London, UK): Fragrant, alpine herbs, nice evolution, yellow apples, hint of nuts, spicy complexity; natural sweetness, lovely mineral freshness, supple, slightly rustic, sea breeze, red apple, nice intensity; good length.

    July 10, 2012 - Lovely floral and apple pie aromas. Quite rich on the entry with round, stone fruit notes. Brighter and fresher on the mid palate with a little red fruit to the fore. Long apricot filled, almost creamy finish. Very nice.

    August 21, 2011 - True, not close to the '07. But if this were my first Feu I'd be raving about it. Ethereal and transparent, though a bit greener than prior years and the acidity could use another year or two to round out. I love this guy's wines.

    July 29, 2011 - Lemon curd, tangerine, laser cut acidity with a bit of heat on the finish. Long finish.
