The 160th edition, based on 2004. In the near future, each release will be numbered on the front label as well as with the ID on the back. This was a very crystalline, pure bottle that took time to develop in the glass. It was an excellent partner to duck confit. @Garth Hodgdon we were sorry not to get together, but thought of you! — a month ago
Onr of the best still white wines I have had this year. This is just hitting its stride at 15 years old with great sweaty, honeyed aromatics, a full bodied, waxy texture and acid on the level of BdB Champagne. — a month ago
My father served this blind with merguez sausage and Cinnamon's ratatouille. With her help, we guessed Cote Rotie due to the blue fruit and confident elegance, but I would have guessed any other vintage in the last 20 years other than 2003. This was pure, streamlined and high toned with decades in front of it. — a month ago
Great Bordeaux hitting a nice peak at 30, with time in hand! All the tannins are resolved, but the dark cassis fruit is still sweet and fresh. Long finishing stuff, highlighted with a touch of black tea. With steak and potatoes- a brand new pairing. — a month ago
