    January 31, 2020 - Much more Pauillac than the 09 Armailhac a few days ago. This has the pencil lead and deep dark fruit, not overripe as you might have feared when tasting 09 Bdx a few years back. While the tannins are well integrated with the generous dark fruit, it is not the most aromatic or complex Pauillac as of now. Hopefully this will come with 2-3 more years in bottle, but a very nice to drink and very aristocratic Pauillac already today. 93+

    December 25, 2019 - Peu expressif et sans relief, peut-être la bouteille avait-elle un défaut, sinon plutôt décevant, a revoir rapidement

    December 9, 2019 - From Coravin. On the nose black over red berries (raspberries and strawberries particularly), a certain saline minerality that lends a touch of austerity, polished oak, cream, Cassis, sweet spice; nutmeg and clove the ones really crying out. And it proves a little austere on the palate; plenty of tannins here that are chalky and grippy with the fruit and other flavours very much playing second fiddle. Hmm. Time will help I'm guessing...

    December 5, 2019 - Pretty enjoyable right now, especially with about an hour of slow ox. There is a slight "stem-iness' to the nose, like the green pepper smell on most Pichon Lalande's, but not as strong. It's a little tertiary and there is a touch of heat on the nose, but should develop some secondary nuances in the future. If you drink now, give it an hour or two of air, then enjoy. Probably a 2 point improvement in the next few years, but not much after that. In short, for a 2009 (with ten years of age) that you can pick up for well under $100, it is a good value.

    (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.
