92 points Robert Parker: "A beautiful wine and one of my favorites from this estate, this blend of nearly two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and one-third Merlot is aging impressively. Dense ruby/purple in color, with creme de cassis, charcoal, and sweet leathery and chocolatey notes intermixed with the classic Pauillac cedar and spice box, the wine is medium to full-bodied, fleshy, with sweet tannin and a long finish. It seems to have inched into its window of full drinking maturity, and will stay there for 10-15+ years." (06/10) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Super aromas of currants, mineral and exotic fruits. Full-bodied, with very firm tannins. This is long and chewy. Tough Clerc, but textbook Pauillac. Cab city. Best after 2010." (03/03) 91 points Stephen Tanzer: "Medium-deep red-ruby. Aromatic nose combines cassis, minerals, mint, shoe polish and sexy oak. Suave and atypically showy for a recently bottled Clerc-Milon. This has lovely racy cassis and mineral flavors, a smooth texture and attractively restrained sweetness. Finishes aromatic and long, with thoroughly ripe tannins." (May/Jun 03) K&L's notes - 33% merlot and 67% cabernet sauvignon. 30% new oak. Black raspberry flavors. This wine is round and fat. Tannins are hidden by fabulous ripe fruit flavors. Excellent balance. Should also be a fine value and long-term cellar candidate.
