90(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - June 2014

Very deep ruby.  Cassis, vanilla and pipe tobacco aromas are complicated by coffee and cocoa on the deeply scented nose and palate.  Broad and fleshy, with licorice and bitter chocolate qualities gaining strength with air.  Shows serious power for the vintage, finishing chewy, sweet and very long, with rising tannins and lingering flintiness.  Considering the difficult vintage, this strikes me as an extremely successful Clerc Milon.
