K&L Notes

The 1989 Clerc-Milon is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc. A warm spring produced early flowering and the heat continued throughout the summer, leading to Clerc-Milon's earliest harvest of the twentieth century to that point. Overall this was a great vintage in Pauillac, and Clerc-Milon took advantage with this dense and concentrated effort balanced by great minerality. 91-93 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "I thought this would be drinking now but the nose and the palate were still quite backward, probably requiring another year or so to enter the drinking plateau. Quite an earthy nose, smoked black fruits which also come through on the palate. There is not actually much difference to Mouton Rothschild! Surprisingly tannic and muscular - this could last another decade with ease. Very impressive but too early now! Tasted July 2003."
