1982 Ch Clerc-Milon

June 14, 2011

Elegance isn’t something normally associated with Ch Clerc-Milon, being usually more stern and vegetal, requiring years to turn the corner. On this occasion, however, the 1982 (decanted with delicate care on site at Bedrock Bar & Grill and drunk over a long lunch on 11 June 2011 with the wifey celebrating our anniversary), still displaying a deep purple in spite of all its 29 years, is obviously fully matured, the wood and tannins having dissipated totally. Typically for this estate, the bouquet is somewhat underwhelming, but the purity of fruit is quite excellent, the wine medium-bodied, glowing with decent acidity and depth, though lacking in layering of the best ’82s, completely seamless and linear and fairly lengthy. Thoroughly enjoyable with the excellent sirloin steak. Only SGD168 from French Wine Cellars.
