This is aging nicely and is in good form right now. It has an interesting nutty, fruitcake aroma. Black currants, plum, some graphite and a nice hint of spice. The tannins are settling in and blend well. An excellent wine but I can't see the 95 WS gives it.

Needs some more time in the bottle (March 2011). Started tightly wound, with forest floor, mushroom, and damp wood, but without much depth. Opened up some after three hours in the decanter, but still requires more cellaring

A very structured, but well proportioned Pauillac that weaves in notes of barrel smoke, tar and graphite to the succulent, red fruit based core. Clerc is balanced to a T and as aristocratic as any Pauillac could aspire to be. Another great candidate for the cellar

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
