This wine continues the upward progression of Clerc-Milon. It has weight and density while also showing sweetness and delicious acidity. A very complete wine.

Juicy and nicely framed with a singed bay leaf note which allows the medium-weight core of crushed plum and mulled fig to glide along nicely through the velvety finish. This fleshes out considerably as it sits in the glass showing more layers of dark fruit and lingering minerality. This has some power in reserve but lovely balance as well. Best from 2013 through 2024. -JM

This fat fleshy dense purple-colored 2009 exhibits abundant notes of creme de cassis roasted espresso chocolate berry fruit and underling hints of high quality unsmoked cigar tobacco. Composed of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon 44% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc Petit Verdot and a touch of Carmenere it reveals plenty of structure and tannin but the evolved aromatics offer a deceptive view that the wine will be drinkable early on. I do not think this is the case as the tannins kick in once it hits the palate. This seriously endowed powerful boisterous muscular Pauillac should hit its prime between 2017 and 2035.

Juicy spicy and tightly wound; dense and powerful but with the elegance of the year. Seriously concentrated wine with enticing sweetness currently overshadowed by a serious spine of dusty tannins. This deep long Pauillac calls for at least six to eight years of cellaring.

A final blend of 50% cabernet sauvignon 44% merlot 4% cabernet franc with 1% each of petite verdot and carmenere that was aged in 1/3 new oak. This ruby colored release possessed ripe fruit and complex spices including plum cassis pepper and mocha complemented by fresh flowers and scorched earth. The medium bodied palate displays fine grained tannins with cherries and tart raspberries. The mid palate is structured with high acidity and plenty of flare wonderful on the elegant finish. Needs another couple of years and should last 15+.
