Chateau Clerc Milon 2007

Chateau Clerc Milon from Pauillac is a favourite of mine.  The 2007 was always going to test our relationship, but it's better than many 07s.  Expect a retiscent cedar like aroma with some blackcurrants in the background.  On the palate, some length, but restrained.  This is solid and well-made, rather than opulent or displaying alluring depth and length combinations.  A distinguished man not quite hitting his straps.  Drink over the next couple of years, though it may keep for a bit longer than that.  85 points (7/10)
