    (Chateau Clerc-Milon (Pauillac)) Cabernet Sauvignon 50%, Merlot 36%, Cabernet Franc 11%, Petit Verdot 2% and Carmenere 1% - a little less Merlot and a lot more Cabernet Franc compared to 2009. The alcohol is 14.5%, reflecting Merlot's higher contribution here. A dark, glossy, dark crimson hue in the glass. Really seductive fruit character here, very expressive and open, far more so than d'Armailhac. There are dried fruits with a darker twist here, notes of black cherry and black raspberry. The palate is polished, quite creamy in terms of composition, seductive and yet relaxed and composed. The tannins have a lightly grainy feel to them, the acidity is firm, but together the whole seems very relaxed despite its flattering flesh. It is the frame of acid and tannin matched with the fruit texture that does this I think. Long finish, the tannins a touch more chewy here - the Merlot? Nevertheless, overall very attractive indeed.
