96 points "Big, young, chewy wine. Good dark-ruby color. Black cherry, green tobacco and mint aromas. Full-bodied and tannic, yet there's lovely mint and cherry character. Still tight and closed. Needs time to show what it's got.--1989 Bordeaux horizontal. Best after 2002. (JS)" Best 2002-2010

90 points "The 1989 Clerc-Milon is a wonderfully hedonistic wine. It is deep ruby, with an intense, roasted, smoky bouquet of plums and currants. This full-bodied wine is packed with fruit, is chewy and opulent as well as very soft and alcoholic. In spite of the precocious impression, the tannin levels are high, similar in fact to the 1986. For the first time in my experience, I actually prefer the Clerc-Milon to Mouton-Rothschild! A great value. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010. Last tasted, 4/91. "
