Maison Ilan

Les Robardelles Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2012

The elusive Maison Ilan 😋🤣 '12 is better than the '11, and this really is a pretty decent bottle of Burgundy.

Good stuff, even better after 24 hours in a decanter, ha! Forgot to post this last night in the excitement of the Caps staving off elimination! #rockthered — 3 years ago

Vieilles Vignes Aux Beaumonts Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

On to the red wine! Too young but I wanted to try the first bottle of the batch for a baseline. And there's unsurprisingly oak, but Vosne spices too underneath, black cherry, hint of earth, touch of reduction...think the raw material is here, and it will get much better, just needs 20 years! #rockthered #letsgocaps #capspens #openthewhoopass — 3 years ago

@Billy L. yeah, I'd say if you have multiple bottles of them all, go ahead and check in. Sample them on open, but '05 probably still needs a decant, especially the GCs...it was a big year, I wouldn't be surprised if there was 200% oak on some, if not most, of those wines.

@Berg - Sounds like a plan, much appreciate your opinion, I'll post them as I "sample" & look forward to more of your Burgundy & Napa Cabernet posts! Thx again, Cheers!


Look forward to following your progress!🍷

Always a good qpr I think with these Bertheaus. Easy to drink, nice tart cherries, great with food.

Monsieur Ètain Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Reaching into the wayback machine of my palate preferences to see if I can motivate the Caps to not suck in the playoffs with some Big F*©king Red Wine. And yeah, this wine just isn't my bag anymore, baby. But I'll take one for the team and choke it down 🤣😂

Ok, I'm being dramatic, it's not terrible, just not what I'm used to drinking anymore.

Strong blackberry, graphite, anise, oak, touch of saline, mint, not too tannic on the palate actually. Fairly smooth.

@Berg funny but I don't mind some Bedrock at 15%, but rarely do I love a cab, CF or cab blend above maybe 14.3%. I hate what Robert Parker has done to wine.

@Noah Raizman Soooo agree


It's rare I meet a wine above 15% that doesn't immediately taste like it...I dunno, maybe I've become more sensitive to it after drinking Champagne and Burgundy for a few years now 😜
