The Puligny was really just for me. For half the money, I’m just as happy with goodfellow, Crowley, or Cameron for 60% of the cost.

Re: What Goodfellow/Matello are you drinking?

Marcus just had your 2017 Chardonnay at Paleys’s. Too cold to start, but it is really good over with starters. I planned on having on of your 2005s, but could not reach it at home and It ended up with the Cameron CE. I will have to move somethings and get to some of your older wines for the holidays.
