    May 27, 2018 - Singular producer. 09 proves the last of the ripe Vatan era. High octane, saline toned white pit fruit. Root vegetable undertones. Some lactic quality in the finish. Nothing to compare this to. Had some cotat Sancerre last night. Probably closest thing to this experience but still a few steps behind. This wine is a wild ride. Open a few hours before you want to make your assessment.

    January 21, 2018 - Vatan Vertical (TDS): A rich and ripe nose with delicious white fruits and steaks of mineral and hay - but this is mostly about that flamboyant fruit. Ripe and round, more so than any of the other wines. Still in balance but not quite as electric as the best bottles tonight.

    January 21, 2018 - Vatan-a-thon at TDS (Chicago, IL): Woof, 15% alcohol on the nose and it shows before I've even taken a sip. The flavours are excellent - again classic Vatan, perhaps a bit riper and more perfumed in intensity than the other vintages, but the alcohol adds a light spirity sensation to the nose and a much heavier, almost glyceral mouthfeel that shows some heat on the finish. Not my thing.

    January 21, 2018 - Vatan (2002 rouge, 2004-12) (Chicago, IL): This was one of the heaviest and ripest wines of the evening, with some really high-toned qualities about it. It's definitely heady, and you can almost pick out some alcohol on the nose as well. Lots of white fruit, but despite the heightened ripeness and fatness here, there is still the necessary muscle under it to keep this from being a shapeless mass. A good wine, but a bit of a laggard in terms of my own personal preference.

    September 12, 2016 - Sushi Taro Dinner: The nose is like mixing finely grind rose pedal and limestone, beautiful mineral and floral note, white pepper and a hint of saline. The fruit expression in this bottle is mostly white and fresh. Very precise palate, incredibly amount of mineral, airy, medium acidity and medium long clean finish with a hint of alcohol at the end. I find the wine pure and very floral. Adding a hint of alcohol makes me to think a high end sake.
