Winemaker Notes

The wine is dark, an attractive garnet red with deeper shades of violet. Reflecting the high proportion of Merlot, Chateau Clerc Milon 2008 opens on intense, almost jammy red fruit mingled with delicate touches of roasted coffee. Round and perfectly structured on the palate, it reveals blackberry and blackcurrant fruit. The nicely forward tannic structure contributes to the overall balance of a wine whose long and flavorsome finish suggests considerable aging potential.

Critical Acclaim

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
On the dry, structured side, a wine with huge fruit tannins that roll over the fruit. The concentration is palpable, all dense fruit. The berry flavors get a look-in right at the end. For long aging, as long as the tannins finally soften.
Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points
WS 90
Wine Spectator
This offers a solid, structured core of red currant, cherry skin and fig notes, laced with savory herb, violet and light-handed toast. There's nice cut on the iron-tinged finish, with some depth in reserve for the cellar.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2008 Clerc Milon offers attractive aromas of toast, black currants and forest floor. Deep, full-bodied, rich, elegant and moderately tannic, this impressively endowed 2008 is an outstanding success from the Mouton Rothschild staff (who are responsible for making this wine). It will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and should drink well for 15 years.

Chateau Clerc Milon Chateau Clerc Milon Winery Image

Chateau 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 de Rothschild.

Convinced of the wine’s potential, Baron Philippe considered that Château Clerc Milon deserved a “rightful place” alongside the family’s two other wines, Chateau Mouton Rothschild and Chateau d'Armailhac. He acquired the estate in 1970 and embarked on a meticulous renovation of the vineyard, drawing on the remarkable skills of the technical staff at Mouton, while reconstituting the estate by gradually buying up the parcels dispersed over the years from their countless owners.

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. To renew the wine’s image and identity, he successively illustrated the Château Clerc Milon label with two decorative works by 17th and 18th century German goldsmiths taken from the Museum of Wine in Art at Chateau Mouton Rothschild:  a Jungfraubecher, a silver-gilt marriage cup, until the 1982 vintage, then a pair of dancers made of precious stones. 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.
