Tasting Note:

D'Armailhac may have closed the gap on Clerc Milon this year, but Clerc still has the edge. The Mouton team has done a great job with this wine over the last decade. The introduction of the second wine, Pastourelle has meant greater selection and the final wine feels more polished and refined. There's good density and plenty of glycerin. Perfumed dark cherries, menthol infused cassis, a nice mineral touch, garrigue and a hint of cocoa nibs. This has a wonderful texture with swathes of sweet black fruit interspersed with graphite notes. It finishes with luxurious tannins coated in briar fruit and minerals. Another very accomplished Clerc Milon! 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Carmenère.
