International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 84

Black ruby-purple. Austere aromas of cassis and licorice. Primary and unevolved, but finer than the above. Here the substantial tannins are more thoroughly buffered by fruit, giving the wine a sweeter, more pliant finish. Perhaps in the line of the '88.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 134

A superb effort, the 1998 may be the finest Clerc-Milon I have tasted. A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot, this is a blockbuster, over-sized offering for this estate. Full-bodied and super-extracted, with power to burn, this rich, concentrated wine demands 7-8 years of cellaring.

Wine Spectator

Silky, well-crafted, with berry, currant and licorice character. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins but a slightly hollow midpalate. Not as good as I remember from barrel.

Finally! This is the third bottle we have opened in 3 month and it is now ready to drink. It's still a bit short and medium bodied but flavours are now getting out. Blackberry and appropriate tannins. But I would not buy more.
