    December 7, 2018 - PNP into Zalto Burgundy glass (“Leaf” day): Medium golden to the eyes.

    Golden orchard fruits with savoury and sweet floral notes. Very clean and classic. Minimal oxidative notes but these add so much complexity to the wine. Very impressive at this point.

    Significant evolution over the next 3-4 hours - even more complexity, with arguably more depth though less structure - A sign of the wine signaling to us we opened it a little too early, fellow taster mentioned.

    “Wow” wine every time I have this cuvee. 94-95 points.

    March 4, 2015 - Nutty, reductive nose initially strange and borderline unpleasant, but gets better with air. Vegetable stew on the nose, as well as nutts, fudge, butter and caramel, burned sugar. Quite a lot of accidity on the palate, develops some sweetness and same nuts on the palate. It was quite good, but I don't see the reason for the hype from this bottle. Certainly an acquired taste.

    January 3, 2015 - Holiday Dinner at Nathan's (Nathan's House - Chicago, IL): Intensely nutty and waxy, there's a lot to like here if you're a fan of the style. The fruit was very bright and had nice lemon/lime throughout. The fruit was really overpowered by the nuttiness and the floral notes. An interesting wine that paired perfectly well with some Comté.

    October 27, 2014 - SALONE DEL GUSTO 2014; 10/26/2014-10/30/2014 (LINGOTTO FIERE TORINO): Savagnin ouillé imbottigliato da un annetto dopo 8 anni di botte grande.
    Giallo dorato che dissimula l' età, sembra un vino di inizio anni 90!
    Dare aria per vanificare lo spunto acetico.
    Al naso tripudio di piccoli delicati toni dolci nocciolati di legno e uvetta contrappuntati da un tappeto salmastro molto pungente, quasi acqua di sardine.
    Al palato, nonostante sia un vino ouillé, ha un carattere ossidativo. Giovanissimo, ancora da ammorbidire, perché l' acidità è marcata e aggredisce le fauci, quasi un succo di limone appena spremuto, ma quando si pensa sia tutto finito, esce il grande vino....
    Il palato viene risanato dalla dolcezza del sotolone che crea una fodera vellutata di zabajone che equilibra la grande acidità iniziale.
    Finale eterno, degno di un Vin Jaune!
    Grande vino

    November 19, 2011 - Dinner at Maureen's (Washington, DC): With air this really rounded into an incredible bottle of wine. It had incredibly dense meyer lemon, banana peel and roasted nut notes at first. The nutty flavor seemed to dissipate over the first 45 minutes or so, and the elegance seemed to just build from there. Towards the end of the night this was pairing very well with some cheeses on the table and had a nice floral and honeyed pear component to it. Up to this point this is probably the most elegant Jura white I've had - thanks to Keith for bringing this along.
