Wine Spectator ReviewRated 95 HIGHLY RECOMMENDEDOffers 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.

Rose and currant aromas follow through to a medium body, with fine tannins and a clean finish. A more delicate style Clerc. —J.S. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Clerc Milon 1500ml

91-93 Barrel sample. 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 finall... Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Clerc Milon 1500ml

Château Clerc Milon, classified a Fifth Growth in 1855, consists of 107 acres of vines, planted with the typical varieties of the region : 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Carmenère. Adjoining two Pauillac First Growths, Lafite and Mouton, the estate had become somewhat neglected when it was bought by Baron Philippe in 1970. Vines were replanted by staff from Château Mouton Rothschild, parcels were consolidated and many technical improvements were made, including the building or a new vat room. These efforts are now bearing fruit and Château Clerc Milon has become one of the most sought-after Médoc wines, displaying a richness and depth comparable with the region's finest

Winemaker's Notes:

Belonging to the Mouton stable, and with a prestigious location right next toboth Mouton and Lafite, Ch. Clerc Milon is a fresher, lighter style of 2008which has a delicious hint of creamy raspberry fruit to the more classicblackcurrant backbone. Fine with exceptionally fine tannins this has a lovelyrounded finish with more than a hint of the savoury minerality of the vintage.
