    May 28, 2012 - Chardonnay Around the World (Systembolaget Passagen, Stockholm, Sweden): Yellow colour. The palate shows some oak and a mixture of sulphur and citrus in a nice mixture adding some nuttines and butter to complete the feeling. The palate is spicy with tones of honey. Perhaps a bit high in alcohol. (Tasted double blind)

    February 26, 2011 - Grand Cru Chablis blind tasting (stockholm): tasted blind.
    Wow, this has the most charming nose of the wines tried this evening. Round, oaked, soft and expressive nose.
    It has body, but it is also a very well balanced wine with medium-long finish.
    My guess was a 2004 les clos. Clearly off. The real chard freaks in the gathering picked this one to be kiwi chard.
    Tied for WOTN for me in the vote. But with the seafood paté served afterward it didn't do as well as my other WOTN, the bougros from verget.

    August 28, 2010 - Squared and centered chard. Nose of barnyard or stinky sock, hints of grapefruit-lemon and stony mineral. In the mouth tastes of mineral and light lemon cough drop (but not sweet) with hint of menthol and immature flowers. Not very acidic. Finishes with same elements above plus a bit more acid at the end. Dryish. Body medium, acid medium minus.
