Winemaker Notes

The 1995 vintage of this wine was ranked #4 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1998

A lovely, deep garnet colour with a violet tint, Château Clerc Milon 2006 has a rich and complex nose redolent with intense aromas of blackcurrant and wild blackberry.

The initial impression, of the utmost refinement, is followed by alluring roast coffee notes. Warmth and generosity continue on the palate. After a full and substantial attack, its firm and close-knit tannins support the expression of deep, super-ripe fruit flavours which mingle harmoniously with jammy notes.

Supple and long, the succulent finish lingers on liquorice and vanilla.

Critical Acclaim

WS 91
Wine Spectator

Offers a gorgeous nose of crushed blueberry and cream, with a hint of milk chocolate. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a pretty finish. Best after 2014. 15,000 cases made.

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

From the same stable as Mouton Rothschild and d’Armailhac, Clerc Milon, despite the relatively high percentage of Merlot (44%) combined with 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance Cabernet Franc, is dense, rich, tannic, and backward. Surprisingly muscular for this offering, which often exhibits a more precocious side, it offers up abundant amounts of creme brulee, chocolate, cedar, and black currants. This full-bodied Pauillac displays gorgeous purity and depth as well as moderately high tannins in the finish. Because of its freshness, structure, and density, it is reminiscent of a 1996 Medoc. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2028.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

Rounded, relatively soft wine, but one that shows balance. Sweet fruit plays with black currant acidity, giving density, even if the tannins are lightweight. Clerc-Milon, made by the team that also produces Mouton-Rothschild, has become a delicious Pauillac.

Chateau Clerc Milon, , France - Bordeaux
Chateau Clerc Milon
Château Clerc Milon, classified as a Fifth Growth in 1855, consists of 79 acres of vines, planted with the typical varieties of the region: 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Carmenère. Adjoining two Pauillac First Growths, Lafite and Mouton, the estate had become somewhat neglected when it was bought by Baron Phillipe in 1970.

Vines were replanted by staff from Chateau Mouton Rothschild, parcels were consolidated and many technical improvements were made, including the building of a new vat room. These efforts are now bearing fruit and Chateau Clerc Milon has become one of the most sought-after Médoc wines, displaying a richness and depth comparable with the region's finest.
