    June 1, 2020 - Loads of life left. Very good quality, although its a touch on the oaky side. Hold 5 more years and then enjoy over the next 15

    December 24, 2019 - Opened. Decantered and wait an hour. Drunk over the next 3hrs
    Dark colour, opens with some nice cassis and a dusty finish
    Nice, but perhaps I expected more. Not sure this has the fruit for a better score
    91-92pts. Since it’s Christmas I’ll go with the latter

    September 15, 2019 - Served pnp, should have benefited from decanting (time). 50% Cabernet Sauvignon; 36% Merlot; 11% Cabernet Franc; 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Carmenere. A pretty big wine tannin wise, classic profile.

    January 30, 2019 - I served this in my wine course. Low pitched nose of blackberries, tar, mushroom. Fairly full bodied, finishing with young tannins tempered a bit with a sweet and salty soy impression.

    April 2011 (link) (17.5-18.) points

    (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.
