Tasting Note:

Clerc Milon is a big step up in quality from the pretty d'Armailhac. There is much more composure and class here. The bouquet is an intoxicating array of gorgeous, perfumed hedgerow fruit, minerals, spice, wild flowers, eucalyptus, liqueur chocolates and cool cassis. This is instantly engaging and provocative. On the palate there is a mass of suave concentrated dark fruit infused with minerals and gravel. We were impressed by the density and refinement and the brooding tannic structure. A classy Clerc. 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Carmenère.
