    May 31, 2020 - Nose of sweet black fruit and cassis. Same flavors in the mouth, plus a nice saline note and classic cedar and hint of tobacco. Mineral note comes out on the long finish. Best Clerc I have had from this vintage.

    May 17, 2020 - Full disclaimer I am not a huge Pauillac fan. Decanted this wine over a 2 hour period. Nice fruit but I detected some edges and by no means was the wine smooth and velvet-like on the palate. I would have rated this 88 to 89 but bumped it up a bit to account for my unfavorable Pauillac bias. More time might help but alas, I have only 2010s left. I imagine that vintage is more accessible.

    May 16, 2020 - Woodward Cellar Emptying; 5/15/2020-5/16/2020 (Woodyville): Unintentional, but fun fact, we had all 3 of my bottles with J&K. The scores have been the same for me, but the wine itself is certainly evolving. Great balance and a little more savory. Some classic Pauillac notes that I DO love. Now-2029.

    (Chateau Clerc-Milon (Pauillac)) A full-on, stolid but at least expressive layer of fruit on the nose, which at least inspires some confidence. A lovely supple integration on the palate though, as there is a balanced weight of fruit together with well-covered, ripe and almost imperceptible tannins and a gentle but fresh acidity. The finish is very savoury and only lightly structured, but the flavours of olive and cranberry with its slightly bitter, mouth-watering bite certainly bring some pleasure. A very good effort.

    (Chateau Clerc-Milon Pauillac) Chateau Clerc-Milon 2009: Cabernet Sauvignon 50%, Merlot 41%, Cabernet Franc 4%, Petit Verdot 1%, Carmenère 1%. Like d'Armailhac also a good hue, cherry red with a bluish rim. The nose here has a very bright and crunchy and lifted style of fruit, cherry aromas with a floral tinge. The palate is again very nicely composed, very firm in terms of structure, with a very upright backbone of tannin. Deep. lightly creamed fruit, although it has a fresh style, just a touch of juice to it. Towards the end it has more grit, a tinge of charcoal too. Overall harmonious, although with firm tannins coming through which will demand time. Lovely savoury finish. Well balanced.
