    June 16, 2018 - Giacosa x Overnoy; 6/16/2018-6/17/2018: PNP into Zalto Burgundy glass (“Leaf”): Medium golden to the eyes.

    A little smoke and fresh tobacco leaves, citrus fruits and dried mandarin peels. Relatively consistent notes with the 2005 and 2012 vintages tasted before.

    Acidity is very high from entry to finish in a good way, very good and distinctive fruits. Nice persistent finish.

    Blind tasting this, it is either Chenin or Savagnin to me. Very good indeed. 93 points.

    October 29, 2012 - Rose City Jeeb (Cafe Castagna - Portland, OR): Magnificently pure and clean chardonnay. Beautiful truffle, pear and minerals on the nose . Drank this alongside a 2009 Gahier Chardonnay and Peter remarked that this was like Chablis & Gahier was like chassagne montrachet. This had focus, tons of energy on the palate and incredible acidity. Great stuff.

    July 18, 2012 - Dinner at Bar Boulud with the Wines of Overnoy/Houillon: Also excellent, but very different from the 2010. Also savory and mineral, but rounder, richer. Perhaps simply a little older, or a difference in vintage character. This is excellent wine, but the raw mineral audacity of the 2010 was a bit more convincing to me. This is the thing about drinking the wines altogether - had I had this on its own, I would have been amazing by IT - instead there is a lot of comparing when there are various bottles open, and certain innate attributes of single wine can get lost.

    February 16, 2012 - À l’ouverture le nez est sur la noisette fraîche, le citron, une pointe beurrée avec un peu de croûte de fromage… bouche avec un bon gras mais à l’acidité plus que marquée dans un registre de pomme verte. Le vin ne semble pas très équilibré. Je l'ai suivi pendant plusieurs jours pour voir et je n'ai pas constaté d'améliorations. Acheté 18 euros chez un caviste.

    Je n'ai pas reconnu ce vin. Plusieurs raisons possibles : 1) mes goûts évoluent vite, 2) variation de bouteille à bouteille (le domaine fait plusieurs mises il me semble), 3) les conditions de dégustation au Grapiot étaient parfaites... nous étions heureux d'être pour la première fois dans le Jura... et puis après 5 heures de route j'avais soiiiif!

    PS : nous étions deux à l'avoir goûté il y a 8 mois, et nous étions deux à le re-goûter... Donc je ne suis pas le seul a avoir été déçu
