1997 Clerc Milon, Pauillac
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Because of its low acidity and evolved style, the 1997 Clerc-Milon deserves consumers' attention. Readers will enjoy its forward, concentrated, cassis/blackberry notes intertwined with coffee, smoke, spice, and chocolate. Drink this lush, hedonistic offering over the next decade. (RP)
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Deep saturated ruby. More exotic, superripe aromas of cassis, red cherry confiture and spice. Fuller and denser than the above, with good texture and sweetness. But also rather tannic, even astringent, on the finish.
Very aromatic red. Interesting aromas of ripe berry and spices. Medium-bodied...(JS)
