    July 1, 2018 - Initially a bit skinny with a touch of potential prem ox (bah!) but this blew off with time to reveal lemons and apples, sweet spice, cream and butter and became increasingly rich over the wine's consumption...long, smooth and very nice.

    November 11, 2017 - Last of a six pack. Absolutely stunning. Now the baby fat has gone and a very precise wine has emerged. Golden fruit. Young with not a hint of oxidation. Rich in the mouth but with great energy and focus. Great finish.

    June 4, 2017 - Lovely golden colour. Expressive nose. Lots of ripe stone fruit on the palate. Rich and just right with rich food. Some mineral but little spice. Long length but let down by a finish lacking real finesse. Drink now.

    May 3, 2014 - This is better than the notes I have seen.
    An unctuous white Burgundy that is just starting to hit the more advanced plateau.
    The nose is golden fruit. Rich. The palate shows a golden rich fruit with a nice long finish.
    Not a lot of mineral note but very rich and delicious. Better than any kind of mid 80 points.
    These are going to be consumed sooner rather than later at my house.

    January 22, 2012 - Absolutely delicious. Balanced and elegant. Nose of white fruit. Quite primary. Elegant balanced palate that has wonderful minerality and a very long finish. Wonderful!
