Château Clerc Milon





Grape Variety:

Cab Sauvignon Merlot

Château Clerc Milon Rothschild, 5eme Cru Classé, Pauillac, 2019

Tasting Note:

This Mouton Rothschild owned Chateau has become one of the most sought after wines from Bordeaux. Its vineyards occupy the strip of land between Lafite Rothschild and the Gironde estuary, and under the watchful eye of Jean-Emmanuel Danjoy, the chateau’s fortunes have been transformed. The 2019 is yet another excellent example. Quite introverted initially, but obviously much grander and more impressive than d’Armailhac, with a broad spectrum of herb infused fruit, bright cherry, tayberry, minerals, iodine, crushed oyster shells and rocks, then dark gravelly fruit. Sleek, composed, and with a sense of transparency; beautifully poised, quite dramatic yet all controlled with dark savoury notes, cocoa nibs, plenty of spice and wild red fruit, rock salt and iron. The tannins are a touch dry, but we expect this to resolve during élevage. 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.

"A very tight, precise red with super fine tannins that are tight and focused. Medium-to full-bodied with linear tannins and a bright, vivid finish. It’s leaner and refined. Precise and driven. This is a very cabernet sauvignon-driven Clerc with 76% cabernet sauvignon. Score: 94-95/100". - James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com
