Chateau Clerc Milon Pauillac 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The powerful 2010 is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc and the balance mostly Merlot except for dollops of Petit Verdot and Carmenere that achieved 14.5% natural alcohol – a record at Clerc Milon. An intense purple color is followed by notes of incense, creme de cassis and flowers and a broad, rich wine with superb purity, concentration and depth. This layered, expansive effort could turn out to be one of the finest this estate has ever made. Give it 3-5 years of cellaring and drink it over the following two decades."*-Robert Parker Wine Advocate (91-93 points)**We will notify you on arrival Summer 2013*

Since 1933, Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, located at Pauillac in the Médoc, has been motivated by a constant ambition: to make the world's finest wines, each in its own category, whether the châteaux wines for which it is responsible – the renowned Château Mouton Rothschild, a First Growth, and its distinguished lieutenants, Château Clerc Milon and Château d'Armailhac – or branded wines, like the famous Mouton Cadet. Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA has also exported its know-how beyond Bordeaux: to the Pays d'Oc, with a range of varietal wines and, more recently, Domaine de Baron'arques; to California, with Opus One; and to Chile, with Almaviva. One of the key factors behind the company's undisputed success is the art of blending, which it practises with exceptional skill.

50% cabernet sauvignon 36% merlot 11% cabernet franc 2% petite verdot 1% carmenere. Very dark ruby bordering on purple at the core.The bouquet gives off complex notes of red and black fruit coffee dark chocolate and cigar. Medium to full bodied this Pauillac is silky and refined on the palate with tannins that are quite integrated for such a young wine. Classic notes of black olive cedar cherry and roasted coffee persist over a long finish. I would not touch for 3-4 years and drink thr

One the finest Clerc Milons I have ever tasted, and showing better from bottle than from barrel, this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and the rest a tiny bit of Carmenere and Petit Verdot has a complex nose of cedar wood, red and black fruits, white chocolate and creme de cassis. A very powerful wine at 14.5% natural alcohol (quite high for a Medoc), this wine has impressive purity and texture, a full-bodied mouthfeel, relatively sweet tannin, but an already endearing complexity, length and richness that are hard to ignore. This is a superb effort and one of the wines that is usually reasonably priced among the classified growths.

Moderately saturated ruby-red. Expressive complex aromas of cassis dark chocolate cedar lead pencil tobacco and fresh herbs. Velvety and fine-grained in the mouth with energetic dark fruit flavors accented by flowers cedar and fresh herbs. Finishes with ripe tannins and excellent sneaky length. I like the impression of sheer size and fresh fruit. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Gorgeous currants and spices with licorice on the nose. Full body with super integrated tannins and a long long finish. The texture and beautiful fruit just wants you to drink this. Give it time but hard to wait. Try in 2016. James Suckling.

Rock-solid, with layers of baker's chocolate and espresso lining the steeped plum and blackberry fruit flavors while intense charcoal fills in on the hefty finish. Backward now, but showing excellent intensity and dark fruit, with a tug of singed iron on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2030. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
