    July 31, 2018 - PopnPour, tasted over 2 hrs
    -nearly semi-translucent med red, minimal clearing at edge
    -expressive pretty perfumed ripe red cherry and a touch of spice and vanilla
    -med- acidity, light/med- weight decent mid-palate concentration straight-forwared ripe cherry faint cola, hints of vanilla oak on finish with med/med- tannins
    -aromatically this is quite excellent and while the palate is certainly pleasant it is surprisingly low in acidity for the vintage and doesn't really evoke Gevrey, particularly Corbeaux

    October 28, 2016 - Lovely red fruit spicy nose, deep, intense. Taste similar to nose, great to drink, smooth. The only negative thing about this wine that I can think of is that the palate is a bit thin on the end, however the complexity of flavours really makes up for this.

    May 1, 2016 - I've been working out my Maison Ilan concerns with this wine and I can't say that I know what is going on, though I am encouraged. All I can say is that the first couple bottles I opened were very difficult and later bottles have been very good. I'm not sure if this is a travel issue or what. Either way, these last bottles have been genuinely good and feel like a wine that could age well. Probably will be saving the rest of my MI wines for (much) later, but I'm glad I had the chance to work things through with this wine.

    February 23, 2016 - Clearly Brett this time. Some good fruit and structure underneath, but you need a pretty high tolerance for Brett to enjoy it.

    January 26, 2016 - Don't know enough to categorize the fault (more of a chemical note than TCA or Brett), but obviously flawed.
