Pauillac 5th Growth Classification
A saturated dark ruby/purple-coloured, medium-bodied, well-made wine, Clerc-Milon's 1984 exhibits textbook, blackcurrant and weedy tobacco scents. Although the wine is slightly tannic, it does not reveal any of the vintage's astringency or vegetal characteristics. It should offer attractive, velvety-textured, surprisingly fine drinking.

Pauillac 5me Grand Cru Classe
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Amber-tinged medium red. A touch of volatile acidity blows off with aeration to reveal aromas of underbrush, tobacco and faded flowers. The tobacco and underbrush elements carry through onto the palate, where they are joined by slightly sweeter notes of redcurrant, quinine and cedar. Finishes clean and smooth, with modest length.

Sauternes 1er Grand Cru Classe
A very good Riessec and one of the few decent wines produced in Bordeaux in this year. Colour rusty, deep gold. A beguiling bouquet of apricot, honey, molasses, old English Christmas cake, toffee and smoke. A beautiful texture in the mouth, weighty, viscous and satiny. Very rich, toffee, honey, treacle and poached pears and apricots. Very ripe but with sufficient acidity to hold it all together. Complex and multi-layered.

Margaux, 1er Grand Cru Classe
*** 93-95 Points - Wine Journal ***
"A sensational bottle that simply defied every rule about Bordeaux. Intense liquorish, cherry liqueur nose: very rich. Thick exotic, rounded palate with super-ripe Merlot. Reminds me of a Petrus! Very complex with spicy, fleshy finish. This bottle is high-toned, succulent and quite delicious. Beyond my wildest expectations. " Neil Martin, Wine Journal 2004
