    May 2, 2021 - 93pts. This is a mature, typical Northern Rhone white. Medium-dense body, fat, deep, with excellent intensity, but little acidity, which leaves it a bit unbalanced. Would like some extra freshness too, but can't complain about its complexity - I got notes of beeswax, honey, caramel, grapefruit, and also some stonefruit. Very nice for what it is, but not for everyday drinking.

    February 28, 2021 - Stone fruit aromas, great body, very full mouth feel, some tropical notes. I'm so glad I have this - it's outstanding!

    February 11, 2021 - Almost sauternes-like gold without the viscosity. Wonderful aromas of honeysuckle, melon and butterscoth lifesavers with a hint of white peach and oyster shell. This fans out across the front to mid-palate with good lift and some marsanne oiliness. Paired very well with steamed fish and crustaceans. Very enjoyable.

    December 5, 2020 - Rich deep golden color. Elegant honeysuckle savory nose with butterscotch notes. Full and satisfying mouth feel. Needs to be decanted for at least an hour and really opens up. Impressive in every way. Drink now but has 3-5 years of solid life. No real change since last bottle.
