The 2019 Clément-Pichon has an intense blackberry and bilberry nose with subtle marine scents emerging with time, the oak neatly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, ever so slightly coarse tannins. Very classic in style, quite edgy, it just needs a little more flesh around the bones towards the briny finish.
Fascinating aromas of currants, spices and lead pencil shavings follow through to a full body with a solid core of fruit and chewy tannins that give structure and length to the wine. Give it at least three to five years to come around.
