1996 Chateau Clerc-Milon Pauillac

This was the only bright spot in a challenging night at work last night. This 5th growth consistently outperforms it’s rank. On the nose, classic Bordeaux, med intensity, spice, earth, currants, cherries, cigar box, some oak, but judicious. On the palate, dry, medium+ intensity, big structure, medium+ tannin, and great length on the finish. This wine lacked some intensity on the nose but made up for it on the palate.
