Food Pairings for Chateau Clerc Milon
red currant , black cherries, and a touch of subtle, vanilla oak, with a fresh mid palate that is powerful and yet retains finesse, with a concentrated and dry finish. A slight flash of new world wine making here, but it's lush and the tannins along with the acidity help out. Should prove to be a stellar one. Decant for least 4+ hours, or cellar for several years, and hold your breath for the magic.
Very Young but after 1 1/2 hr in the decanter, I could have almost thought I was drinking its bigger brother for a fraction of the price of course.. not bad in my book
External Reviews for Chateau Clerc Milon
[Barrel tasting] This is a finely crafted wine, packed with all the right tannins that blend easily into the wood and blackberry flavors. The fruit is very pure, intense and finely layered.
Clerc-Milonrsquo;s 2005 has moved ahead of its stablemate, drsquo;Armailhac. A blend of nearly equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon (48%) and Merlot (40%), and the rest Cabernet Franc, it exhibits plenty of charcoal, roasted coffee, smoke, blackberry, and cassis notes along with a meaty-like character to its flavors and texture. Full-bodied with surprisingly high tannin as well as gorgeous depth and a multidimensional mouthfeel, this stunning Pauillac should be at its finest between 2014ndash;2030.
[Barrel tasting] Loads of violets, berries and currants with hints of mineral and light vanilla. Full-bodied, with very silky tannins and a long, long finish. Is it better than 2003? Wait and see.
Offers fabulous aromas of currant, tar, lead pencil and mineral. Full-bodied, with supersoft tannins that caress the palate. Beautiful and impressive. A fabulous wine. The best Clerc in a very long time. Best after 2014.
Here is a fifth-growth Bordeaux that consistently outperforms its rank. Interestingly, it is one of the few estates that still devote vineyard space (1% of its 43 hectares) to the Carmenère variety, once widely planted in Bordeaux but now almost extinct. This is a masculine bottle, full of muscular tannins mellowed by ripe Cabernet Sauvignon fruit.
Clerc-Milon continues on its rising path of quality with this rich and rounded magnificent 2005. Driven by rich, red jam fruits, and dominated by the dense, solid tannins, this wine is already approachable, but will develop over 8ndash;12 years.
Deep ruby-red. Deeply pitched aromas of musky currant, chocolate and nutty oak. Very ripe, sweet and densely packed if a bit youthfully clenched. A massive, typical Pauillac thatrsquo;s slow to reveal its personality. Showing less exuberant minerality today than the 2005 Armailhac but this has real power and density. Finishes with late-arriving, ripe tannins that reach the front teeth.
