The wine is a deep and radiant garnet red. The nose reveals finely toasted spice and tobacco notes combined with more intense aromas of red fruit and cherry stone, with a mineral touch. The palate is full and well-defined, dominated by the lustre of succulent fruit and refined, flavoursome tannins that open on a hint of chocolate. The long, warm-hearted finish is lifted by a slightly saline taste. A superb wine in a particularly demanding vintage.

Wine SpectatorExhibits a solid core of crushed currant, blackberry and black cherry fruit, backed by refined tannins. The notes of roasted cedar and iron are well-buried for now. This should develop into a textbook Pauillac after some modest cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2026.

Wine AdvocateAdministrator Philippe Dhalluin has produced a firmly structured 2011 Clerc Milon that displays notes of red and dark cherries intermixed with earthy, dusty characteristics, medium body and good purity. Slightly angular, it will benefit from some bottle age, and should evolve for 15 or more years. The only troublesome element is the tartness in the finish, which should soften and dissipate in several years.
