2005-Night 3 and Overall Results
2007-Night Three and Overall Results
In vintage 2003: acidified his wines, and as a result, "I did do some
to make sure that it completely integrated.”
In vintage 2007: current free SO2 target is 30-35 ppm. Not clear when this level began.
In vintage 2009: Roger Belland switched from natural cork to DIAM closures (agglomerated cork with a binding material. DIAM claims lower oxygen permeability than natural cork and virtually non-existent TCA)
(20 Jan 2006): badly oxidised [Michael Lux]
(11 Feb 2006): not really oxidised but NO ACIDITY at all. Off bottle [Michael Lux]
(Mar 2012): Not oxidized. Delicious wine, gold color, long finish [Kurt]
