Expert Reviews

88-90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - April 2013

(60% cabernet sauvignon, 29% merlot, 9% cabernet franc, 1% petit verdot and 1% carmenère):  Bright ruby-red.  Red berries and sweet spices on the perfumed, open nose, complicated by cocoa and coffee nuances.  Bright and fresh on the palate, with a spicy mineral overlay to the red and dark berry flavors.  Finishes sweet, supple and long, with smooth tannins.  This potentially outstanding Clerc Milon comes across as fleshy and rich; I would have guessed it contained a lot more merlot than 29%.  Very good stuff in the context of the vintage.
