    December 20, 2019 - Have heard these old Salon’s are dead, but had a real nice 82’ a year or so ago, and this bottle looked like it had great provenance, so we went for it. I do think this was one of the better bottles, with a near perfect cork. Showed pretty well with more freshness and effervescence than expected, but was fairly rapidly oxidizing, showing best in the first hour. Definitely the time to be drinking these up.

    October 30, 2017 - Butterscotch and caramel nose that still has green and yellow apple citrus. Toasty brioche and vanilla bean. Very fresh white flowers. The palate is a beautifully creamy caramel. Dense and rich. Creamy milk chocolate. Good effervescence and zip remaining. Marzipan. Nuanced, but moreover delicious. A perfect bottle.

    February 24, 2017 - From magnum, butterscotch nose, taut acidity, rich but a bit too advanced to my taste. Don't hold on to these, drink up.

    February 24, 2017 - A 40th Birthday Celebration, Dinner Edition (Atlas Bistro - Scottsdale AZ): From magnum. Fully mature apple and lemon curd aromas and flavors. Excellent concentration and length. Started out beautifully mature (94 points), starting to seem slightly less vibrant when retasted near the end of the magnum (92 points). At this point, a wine best to pop and enjoy, vs linger over.
