    July 29, 2021 - Red brick color with a slight haze and a small amount of sediment. Cork was in perfect shape. Profound aroma of dead wood/garrigue, cherry liqueur, roasted pecan, smoke, and nettles. Midweight mouthfeel, nice balance of tannins and acidity, but not intense or persistent. Medium finish with lingering tar and smoke. Followed for about 5 hours open with minimal change in character. 4+12+16+8= 90... which is a bit of a letdown for Grand Cru.

    February 27, 2021 - Setting aside for a moment the travails of actually procuring this wine direct from Ray (sad/bizarre tale told at length elsewhere), it’s actually a really elegant and balanced wine. Specifically, beautiful earthy nose with a whiff of tabac. Dried cherry and pomegranate come through on the palate with delicious, chewy tannins on the finish. Too bad this venture tanked.

    September 8, 2020 - Very similar to the '11 Ilan Charmes-Chambertin opened a few days earlier, albeit perhaps slightly inferior. This is fragrant and well-packaged but neither grand nor deep like one would expect from Chambertin. Better than expected, not flawed, and honestly not a terrible deal for the original price, if you can ignore all the Maison Ilan insanity. (That said, I'm not exactly searching for more.)

    July 5, 2018 - Maison Ilan @ Medlar: Dark, dense ruby. A touch of lift. Very harmonious, densely silky. Attractive. A touch savoury on the nose. ****
