    July 11, 2018 - . Apple and some rather exotic tropical fruit, yet with snappy acids. There’s just a hint of incipient oxidation, and it did fade at end of bottle, so I wouldn’t hold much longer, but this bottle was a pointe for most of bottle. A-/B+

    July 11, 2018 - Agree with Mr. BISKUIT
    Really a great showing. Lots of what I want in aged white Burgundy. Terrific tropical fruit-spiked liveliness and then, later, almost a sweet-honey earth-funk-shroomy roundness. Kept evolving in the glass and was a joy at each step. Still lively and lovely. Thank you DCornutt!

    July 10, 2018 - Hot damn this was stellar, initially coming across as rather Riesling, pineapple undertones, golden body, but then blossomed into more typical Burg notes. Thank you DCornutt!

    May 22, 2018 - Plenty of vigor left here with good acidity balancing out the flasvors of exotic white flowers, lemon and mint. Very pure and crystalline with a lovely focused and finely complex finish. Mature but still fresh. A bit of a revelation that this has held up so well.

    April 21, 2018 - Very fresh nose, mature yellow fruit but still bright and energetic, nice reduction, smoke, and some steely minerality. Big projection and highly complex. Maybe a little lighter and thinner on the palate. Gains plenty of weight after an hour or so. Big acid drives a detailed, developed, complex, and long finish. Bottle in absolutely perfect condition and showing developed aromas and flavours with shocking freshness. Everything you hope for with an older white burgundy.
