    July 18, 2019 - absolutely fantastic wine. Deep, complex, with perfectly integrated acidity. A game of melon, wet herbs, white fruits, white tea and some gunpowder. On the palate with a fine bite, deep and persistent. And it's complex and long. Great!

    September 29, 2018 - Started off with flinty reduction/sulfur, but the texture was supple and long. As it opened the flint blew off and it was more yellow pitted fruits and lemon along with rocky minerality. Has a different profile than Vouvray Sec or Saviennières and not really much to compare it to exactly. I get the Burgundy comparisons, but it is bigger and denser and differently proportioned. Opened this to see if I still love these wines given the surge in pricing that is tempting me to sell. The verdict is keep. This is in a good spot right now but should improve and last for a long time. Next time, I might decant it.

    April 30, 2018 - This seems to get better with each bottle. Fantastic viscous mouth feel with amazing balance, complexity, depth and a round, delicious and lengthy finish. One of the best white wines I have ever had.

    March 17, 2018 - Un vin pas comme les autres! Besoin d’air, de temps, car il sort de son contenant un peu etourdi, compact, unidimensionnel, bien que très long. Il sonne très brézé au nez (me rappelle guiberteau en moins tendu), avec une legere réduction, mais une aromatique de chenin mineral; en bouche, il est plus rond, suave, d’un tactile séduisant, avec une acidité discrète, saline, très fine (la marque des grands! -là où Guiberteau se montre plus austère-). C’est en s’aérant qu’il s’equilibre, prenant du relief, affirmant sa mineralité et sa tension, mais avec toujours beaucoup de classe et de finesse: on sent un millésime mûr, riche, ample, qui ne tombe jamais dans la lourdeur, rehaussé par une finale saline, caillouteuse et ciselée.

    June 10, 2017 - Awesome. Densely layered, unending palate - pits of yellow stone fruit, lemon, mineral, a little oak. Creamy, ripe feeling. Nose of wooly chenin blanc. $100 at Ripple.
