“The 2009 Pastourelle de Clerc-Milon, the debut second wine of Clerc-Milon, represented around 20% of the total crop and is designed to be a more punter/restaurant friendly take on the grand vin. A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, 1% Carmenère and 2% Petit Verdot, it has a flamboyant, almost gregarious bouquet with crème de cassis and kirsch-like aromas. The palate is ripe and rounded, easy in style thanks to its round tannin, a touch of graphite infusing the black fruit with a simple finish that leaves a dash of white pepper on the aftertaste. There is something almost New World about this wine, Chilean maybe, which I don’t mean in a negative way, just that tincture of kirsch-like exoticism that surfaces with time. It does what is sets out to do – slip down the throat with ease. Tasted September 2016.” The Wine Advocate, Jan 2017

Reviews

  • Joseph Newman

    I like this Reserva from RdD. 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in oak barrels.

    3.8 stars with more aging potential.

    A deep ruby red and purple shades. Thick long legs in the glass.

    On the nose medium intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, black raspberries, horse saddle, leather and slightly oak.

  • Soham Phillips

    This amazing powerhouse from Ribera del Duero. Tinto Pesquera Reserva 2012 - Bodegas Alejandro Fernández. Decanting is advised 👌🍷 delicious cherry, vanilla, leather and cederbox with cigars. Milk chocolat, forrest floor, laurel. Great lenght and depth Amazing wine!

  • Gregor Jagermeister

    90 pts Given the quality of the Crianza I really was delighted to find this Reserva, needs way more time to fully flower however, still very enjoyable for me now. The Crianza is ready now, but this shows sleeping intensity and great future potential and longevity, wait a few years however.

    Typical earthy red fruit with good use of oak, dusty vanilla. Weighty, full with a long finish, it will be a star in the future.
