Château Clerc Milon 2009

Bordeaux - Pauillac - Red - 13.5° Château Clerc Milon Château Clerc Milon 2009 1041/09
  • Parker : 93
  • J. Robinson : 17,5
Château Clerc Milon, classified a Fifth Growth in 1855, consists of 107 acres of vines, planted with the typical varieties of the region : 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Carmenère. Adjoining two Pauillac First Growths, Lafite and Mouton, the estate had become somewhat neglected when it was bought by Baron Philippe in 1970. Vines were replanted by staff from Château Mouton Rothschild, parcels were consolidated and many technical improvements were made, including the building or a new vat room. These efforts are now bearing fruit and Château Clerc Milon has become one of the most sought-after Médoc wines, displaying a richness and depth comparable with the region's finest

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2009 Clerc Milon has great purity on the nose, almost Burgundy-like, with black cherries, cedar, fresh mint and pine cone aromas that gently unfold in the glass. The palate is extremely well balanced, with fine tanninùstill a little tight and linear (unlike many 2009s)ù but with a very persistent finish. Alongside the 2010, this is an extremely pleasurable, almost lascivious Clerc Milon that is one of the most sensual releases under winemaker Philippe Dhalluin. Tasted April 2017.
