Chateau Clerc-Milon Pauillac Bordeaux France, 2010, 750

95 Decanter
“Clerc is outperforming in texture, depth, fruit character and overall complexity compared to Armailhac, even though at this point in its history the investments and improvements that this property had seen were just at the beginning, and Jean Emmanuel Donjoy had joined just a year before as technical director from Opus One in Napa. This is a near perfect Pauillac to be drinking now, and I would skip right to it in the Mouton stable while you wait for its First Growth sibling to come around - or simply stay right here, because you are not going to be sorry. The juicy character continues right through the palate, and there are layers of liquorice, black cherry, damson and bilberries, all delivered in a silky texture that is ripped with tannins cradling the fruit in just the way you want them to. I love it.”

94 JS
“Gorgeous currants and spices with licorice on the nose. Full body, with super integrated tannins and a long, long finish. The texture and beautiful fruit just wants you to drink this. Give it time but hard to wait.”

94 WS
“Rock-solid, with layers of baker's chocolate and espresso lining the steeped plum and blackberry fruit flavors while intense charcoal fills in on the hefty finish. Backward now, but showing excellent intensity and dark fruit, with a tug of singed iron on the finish.”

92 IWC
“Moderately saturated ruby-red. Expressive, complex aromas of cassis, dark chocolate, cedar, lead pencil, tobacco and fresh herbs. Velvety and fine-grained in the mouth, with energetic dark fruit flavors accented by flowers, cedar and fresh herbs. Finishes with ripe tannins and excellent sneaky length. I like the impression of sheer size and fresh fruit.”
