Pleasing and everything you want from Pauillac. Red currant and subtle leather aromas with a touch of dusty rock notes.

Classic Clerc. Less intense than from a warmer, riper year, but has all the complexity and fine balance you'd expect.

Delicate florals and dried fruits, the acidity is diminishing but it is still a lovely wine. Drink sooner rather than later.

This is a classic Paulliac - a reminder of why I treasure this region. Barnyard, cedar, rosemary, spices on the nose. This wine evolves after 2 hours, where you truly experience it's complexity and structure. Bell pepper, black fruit, hint of leather, integrated tannins, long finish... This wine drinks well now but certainly has all the right ingredients to evolve further over the next 5 years.

Amazingly good! You could taste the age on this and it had a sense of richness and creaminess that is classically Bordeaux. Picture perfect.

9.8 for 10 Clerc Milon, big wine with lots of everything: high tannin, high acidity, loads of complex flavors (mint, cigar box and exotic spice), built to age. 11 has distinct licorice flavor, lighter in body & tannin with moderate length, so 8.9. 06 has a rich body but more integrated tannins than 10 with chocolate & tobacco notes, so 9.4. 2000 more linear body with intense aromatics: graphite, dusty earth and smoked meats so 9.6 for intoxicating nose.
