Tasting Note:

Philippe Dhalluin and his Mouton Rothschild team have made such strides at Clerc Milon over the last decade. The introduction of the second wine, Pastourelle has meant greater selection and the final wine feels more polished and refined. This is initially wonderfully perfumed with notes of black cherry liqueur, graphite, plums, flowers, umeboshi and dark chocolate. On the palate it is sumptuous and pure with wonderful density of fruit and plenty of glycerine. Perfumed dark cherries, menthol infused cassis, a nice mineral touch, garrigue, fine stones and a hint of cocoa nibs. This has a wonderful texture with swathes of sweet black fruit flecked with dark mineral notes. It is quite grandiose and very grown up for Clerc Milon. This feels like a new era for this 5th growth - the tannins have a new found quality; real precision, wonderfully judged with detailed nuances. It finishes with luxurious tannins coated in dark cherry fruit and minerals. Superb! 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Carmenère.
