Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Château Clerc Milon Rothschild, 5ème Cru Classé, Pauillac, 2009

Clerc Milon has a wonderful terroir and we are delighted to report that the Mouton team are pressing all the right buttons. We were deeply impressed with the 2008, but 2009 is a noticeable improvement. Really floral with notes of crushed rocks, violets, ripe plums and tobacco. The attack is packed with intense blackcurrants and lush, suave fruit. The 2009 Clerc is tightly knit, composed and very classy. An utterly seductive Pauillac, which is graceful, powerful, impeccably balanced and possesses real energy and verve.

Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

Touch of reduction at first, but as it opens this just sings with purity of cassis, bilberry, blackberry puree, liqourice root, chocolate drops, earth. Speaks with the same voice as the great early vintages of 1982, 1990 but with more precision, depth and clarity, a brilliant vintage that is tasting so good right now. A significant year in Clerc Milon's history also - Jean-Emmaneul Danjoy arived from Opus One, giving Clerc its own dedicated team for the first time, and the new cellar was officially unveiled, meaning it was possible to separately vinify the Petit Verdot and Carmanère, that had been co-fermented until this point. The second wine Pastourelle de Clerc Milon was also introduced this year, further increasing selection. Harvest September 23 to 13 October, 50% new oak.

Neal Martin, Vinous

The 2009 Clerc-Milon has a rather conservative bouquet that seems to have closed down in recent years, yet retains fine delineation with blackberry, wild hedgerow and subtle cassis, almost ink-like aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, surprisingly high in acidity given the vintage with a slightly muddled finish. I have encountered better bottles. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting.

Château Clerc Milon

Owned by the Baron Philippe de Rothschild empire, Clerc Milon has benefited from financial investment of its parent and the technological knowhow of First Growth partner Mouton Rothschild. Situated to the north east of Pauillac close to Duhart Milon and Lafite Rothschild, there are currently 40 hectares in current use with a further five hectares which will come on line in the next few years. Since 2005 the wines have been of excellent quality and the bar is continually being raised. For those who want First Growth wine-making at a fraction of the cost, you’d do well to look at Clerc Milon and d’Armailhac.
