    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

    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.

    January 3, 2015 - Spectecular bottle, red fruit spicy nose, a bit cassis and rhubarb. Taste red fruit, lovely acidity and round tannins, long finish. A "keep on drinking wine". Lots of potential for further development.

    May 8, 2012 - Tasting at Maison Ilan with Ray Walker (Nuits-Saint-Georges): Barrel sample. My very abbreviated note simply says this was a nice wine, and very substantial.
